Troubleshooting Email

We've recently made some improvements to our Message Center. These changes are designed to help enhance your email experience. However, we've found some of the changes may not function properly on all computers, resulting in some difficulties such as:
  • Clicking on the Inbox tab results in a blank page.
  • Email messages take a long time to load.
  • Delete or Send buttons do not work.

In many cases, these problems can be caused by security settings on your computer, either with third-party security software, or with the existing Windows Internet security settings. If you've been experiencing any of these symptoms, please try the following solutions:

  1. Reconfigure your security software settings.

  2. If you don't have any third-party security software installed click here.
  3. Switch back to the previous version of Message Center click here.
  4. If you continue to experience problems click here.

  4. Click the X under Persistent Cookie Control for netzero.net.
