I want to change from Outlook Express to Microsoft Outlook. I have set up the account, ticked all the boxes and sent a test message, but I can't seem to receive any mail, it all goes into my OE account.
I have tried importing the account settings and have set Outlook as my default programme but still the mail goes to OE although Outlook is telling me everything is OK.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you removed your account details from OE ?

Also have you typed the outgoing account settings in Outlook correctly ?

Incoming is usually pop3.xxxxxxx.co.uk or smilar

Outgoing is usually smtp.xxxxxx.co.uk or similar
Mail doesn't GO to a client, it is COLLECTED by the client, so the only way that your mail can end up in OE is if you are still running it and checking your mailbox. If OE collects the mail, it will request that the server delete it, so obviously, if you then try to collect it in Outlook, it will not be there!
If you go to Internet xplorer,"Tools" "Options " "programmes is Outlook set as the default email programme?
