    Why am I unable to send or reply to e -mails?


    I just bought an HP laptop last week and I am trying to learn about the features. I have spent 12 years with my old desktop with MSN as my provider using slow dial up.

    I was surprised that my msn e-mail account was able to switch over to my laptop so easily, since Time Warner is my provider on the new laptop.

    I can access the e-mails without a problem, but I can neither reply nor send e-mails.


    Instead, I always get the pink writing beneath the e-mail address stating that " one or more e-mail addresses does not support this format sample@something.com. Yet all the formats are correct.


    Does anyone know why I can't send out anything?
