Problems with Road Runner!!!

Road Runner will allow me to send email bu not recieve it. I get this email when I click send and recieve (im using Outlook Express)

''The server for the account Road Runner returned the error 'mail storage system unavailable, wait a few minutes and try again. Your username/password or secruity settings maybe incorrect. Would you like to try re-entering your password?''

I have re-entered it several times and even restarted my computer but still nothings happened.
Any ideas what going on and how i can fix it?
Thanks for any help

My guess is you're using the wrong username or password. Have you double-checked them? Also, try logging into the Road Runner account services with them to see if they work elsewhere on the RR network.

I've had road runner for a year and could never ever ever get outlook express to work. I do everything through my hotmail account. I've also heard that outlook express is pretty susceptable to viruses. I also don't use the usenet portion of outlook, I prefer Forte Agent or X-News.
