Can anyone spot what might be wrong here?

Using OE6 with a W98 pc I experience these symptoms:

1. Frequently when I Send a message I get this error message

Some errors occurred while processing the requested task. Please review the list of errors below for more details. … with this below … [i]An unknown error has occurred. Protocol SMTP, Port 0, Secure (SSL) No, Error Number 0x800131

and my message is not sent. Rather it ends up in the Outbox.

2. If I ignore the error message and GoTo the Outbox and hit Send then frequently (but not always) my message is Sent.

3. Often when I Goto my Inbox I find that no messages appear there (I get a blank screen). If I reboot (CAD two times) and go to OE, my incoming messages are there.

I'm baffled, would appreciate any suggestions

Error 0x800131 seems to be some obscure error that should never occur because there is no mention of it in Google.
The best I can suggest is that this may be an ISP issue, however your disappearing messages in the Inbox would say its an Outlook Express issue, for which the solution will probably be an uninstall and reinstall Internet Explorer 6 job.
