Sending and receiving e-mails using Outlook 2007 has been OK for a long time, now it cannot connect to the server and comes up with Error 815 suggesting I contact my ISP for the service name field of the connection properties. My ISP says this is not
needed and the fault is with Outlook. I have checked everything and it all seems to be OK. I have Windows Vista Business Service Pack 2. Also when it is trying to connect it says it is doing it through WAN Miniport PPOE or something like that. What is
WAN Miniport? My ISP suggests using their online e-mail and this is what I am doing at the moment, but I would like my Outlook back. Any suggestions?
