Viewing Your E-Mail Details
In Outlook Express, when you click Send and Receive to check your mail, a dialog box will open to display your progress. If you click Details, you'll get a much more detailed display. I find this helpful because I can spot problems when they occur, rather than sit around waiting for an error message. Once you click Details, this view will remain in effect until you change it.

It is a good idea to leave Details turned on. It's a great diagnostic aid, and doesn't have any effect on the way Outlook Express Operates.

Note: The same kind of information can also be viewed from Outlook, if you use it as an e-mail client.
