Most Web Mail sites are charging for pop3 access (Lycos and Yahoo do it,
too). They used to offer it for free, but it is all changing now.

1. Unable to send email via hotmail or other webmail

Help needed,

I am unable to send email via hotmail or any other internet-based webmail on
my home desktop (P4 2.33Ghz running XP and IE6 & Netscape Navigator).

Click on the new msg button and window pops up fine. Type message and then
click on send and the window simply hangs. Same thing happens when I click
on attach file: it lets me browse locally for file, and then hangs when I
ask it to upload the file onto the message.

I am also unable to submit messages to newsgroups, yet I am able to query
search machines.

FYI: I am able to send emails if I connect my office laptop to the same
dialup, so it's not the ISP.

Can anyone shed any light on this issue?
