    my guess is that you have some incorrect info in the receive mail account/

    If your antivirus program is McAfee or Norton, uninstall, reboot,
    then try WinMail again. If it works now, install a less disruptive antivirus
    such as the free AVG or Avast. Whichever antivirus you decide on,
    make sure its mail scanning option is disabled.

    Tony, just a wild guess here :)

    Change the accounts server names to:
    The address of the Orange POP mail server is: pop.orangehome.co.uk
    The address of the Orange SMTP mail server is: smtp.orangehome.co.uk

    Obviously if you do connect via the .fr server then try that also.
    The address of the Orange POP mail server is: pop.orangehome.fr
    The address of the Orange SMTP mail server is: smtp.orangehome.fr

    Hello All...

    thank you for your help, I think I will use something else and wait till
    windows mail is a bit older hoping it will be easier to use with all types
    of configurations rather than struggle between softwareand risque other
    problems or losing emails ect...

    Thank YOU...

    waiting for a miracle TONY...
