If you installed IE7 and it broke your ability to send e-mails or newsgroup posts with Outlook Express, I have the fix for you. What you want to do is go in to your Account settings and then go to the properties tab for whichever account you’re using. I believe this only broke the newsgroup account but it may be for everything. Click on the newsgroup tab, then click on the newsgroup account, from there you’re going to want to click on properties. Go in to the connection tab, check off that box that says “always use this connection”. This fixed everything for me. Hope this works for you and if it does, like always, leave a little note.
