    Rav, thank you for your prompt reply.  Unfortunately one i Check "run as an administrator"  Reckon wont open any of my back up files as it displays the message that it "looks like i'm trying to run the programme from a different computer", and as I have purchased the software for installation on 1 computer only, it is not possible and i need to upgrade my licence.  Any further suggestions would be most helpful
    thank you
    Stephen

    Thanks for trying Stephen,

    Ok, I just want to rewind a little bit before we do address the latest message.

    Can I confirm what settings you listed selected when attempting to email. In the 'Format' selection, do you have HTML selected? OR plain text?

    Now, in regard to the second point about not being the same computer, apologies I should have mentioned that in my previous reply. Running as Admin follows a slightly different path in terms of authorisation which will require you to activate, just follow the prompts to activate online.

    Let me know if that helps

    Hi Rav,

    It seems I have the same problem again, when I go to send email error message "mail login failed" comes up. I remember its something to do with outlook and reckon not being compatible?
