I have outlook as my computers default email, when I open it up there is a message bar that appears across the top that says " having trouble connecting to our email, deleting or moving may take a while" it works fine but this pops up, if I log in through the web it does not do this, any ideas?

The error message seems to say that outlook is having problems talking to the account - that it works in a browser is doesn't mean anything with most mail servers- it may be using a different server than Outlook is.

Is this an account? did the problem recently start? I know there are issues with the service.
