sorry for your troubles and frustration, but there are
things we'd need to know to help you further.
what type of set up do you have? how are you
do you get your mail through your ISP or through
some other provider?
in my case i run linux and use mutt from a terminal
aka text type screen.
to get my e-mail from the remote place where it is
stored for me i have to use a program which goes and
gets it and puts it on my local machine for my own
to send e-mail i also had to configure mutt to do
it can take some time to get through the various
steps but some tools can help there.
the debug option when running mutt is one of them.
