e.mail mystery

I wonder if this is happening to anyone else - or is it just me?

I have broadband and my outlook express is open all day - but sometimes my e.mails goes through to the webmail site instead of outlook express. I did not realise this and messages sat in webmail for about 10 days - I have spoken to tech support and they gave me instructions on setting outlook express up to receive my webmail straight into outlook express - but that doesn't work either I still get mail being sent to webmail instead. Any ideas

It sounds to me that you have set up at least one named mailbox and have outlook set to collect mail from it. ie waafa+boxname

If so then any other mail sent to anyothername@yourloginname> will not be collected by Outlook.
To collect all your mail by outlook just set it to log on as waafa with your normal password.
