If you are ever having difficulty with your email, such as, you're experiencing delays in sending and receiving mail, you're unable to move emails into specific folders, or you are unable to open your email client or individual emails at all, we suggest that you follow the below steps. These steps will help you narrow down your problem or even completely correct the problem.
Close Your Email Program and Restart
Close down the program that is running your email. Wait for a couple of minutes and then start the program again.
Shut Down Your Computer and Restart
Completely shut down your computer. Wait for a couple of minutes and then restart the program.
Check If Your Internet is Working Properly
Open a brand new internet browser. Go to a brand new website that you have never been to before. If the webpage comes up on your screen as you anticipate, your internet is working fine. If the webpage is delayed or you receive an error message, your internet could be temporarily slow or not working at all.
Try Using Someone Else's Computer Within Your Office
Ask to use a co-workers computer and send a test email to yourself. This is a great way to narrow down if it is just your computer or if the problem is affecting others as well.
