Hello, I've recently set up outlook express on the internet explorer version
6. however I have wrongly entered the registration details i.e. when asked
for my email details I put on my gmail details instead of my i.s.p. email
address and password, can someone tell me how I can either erase the
settings I've got so I can start afresh or is there away to amend my default
settings.

Thanks Brian.

No problemo. Open Outlook Express and go to Tools > Accounts. Select the
account you want to fix and click the Properties button.

1a. OE Tools > Accounts > Add > Mail > Follow the prompts to configure ISP
account per their instructions

1b. Remove (delete) the Gmail account, if desired: OE Tools > Accounts >
Mail > Gmail (select) > Remove.

NB: You don't have to remove the Gmail account. You may have any number of
POP3 accounts running in one (1) identity, though all incoming messages will
default to the same Inbox. You can configure Message Rules to route them
elsewhere when they come in (see http://www.insideoe.com/tips/rules.htm).

2. OE Tools > Accounts > Mail > [Gmail] > Properties > Change as needed in
each section of each tab.

Tell him about 'munging' PA, I'm off to the pub.
I know he is a bit too late :-))

Hey Brian, Mac brought up a good point...it's a very VERY good idea to put
something in your email address for your news accounts so that spammers
can't get your address off the newsgroup. Stick something like REMOVETHIS
in the middle of your email address--otherwise you are likely to start
receiving hundreds of spam messages daily.
