Hi Suman,

You should first try to determine whether you can connect to the Internet. If you are connected to the Internet but you cannot send or receive e-mails, go to method 1 to create a new e-mail profile.

If you cannot connect to the Internet, this might be the reason that you are unable to send or receive e-mails. You might want to contact your ISP. After your Internet connection is restored, try to send yourself an e-mail to check whether your problem is resolved. If you are still unable to send or receive e-mails after your Internet connection is restored, go to method 1.

Method 1: Create a new e-mail profile

Step 1: Open the Mail Setup dialog box

  1. Click Start, click Run, type Control in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Depending on the version of Windows running on your computer, do one of the following:
    • Windows XP:

      If you are in the Category View, click User Accounts, and then click Mail.

      If you are not in the Category View, double-click Mail.
    • Windows Vista:

      Click User accounts, and then click Mail.
  3. The Mail Setup dialog box opens.

Step 2: Start the New Profile wizard

  1. Click Show Profiles.
  2. Click Add to start the New Profile wizard.

Step 3: Create a profile

  1. In the Profile Name box, type Test, and then click OK to name the new e-mail profile.
  2. Follow the steps appropriate for your version of Outlook:
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2010
      1. Click to select the Manually configure server settings check box.
      2. Click Next.
      3. On the Choose Service page, click Internet E-mail.
      4. Click Next.
      5. Fill in the boxes in the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box. Make sure that the Account Type setting is set to POP3.

        Note Enter the information from your ISP or from your e-mail administrator in the Incoming mail server box and in the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box.
      6. Click Next, follow the prompts to finish setting up your account, and then click Finish.
      7. Your new profile is created. Go to step 4.
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2007
      1. Click to select the Manually configure server settings check box.
      2. Click Next.
      3. On the Choose E-mail service page, click Internet E-mail.
      4. Click Next.
      5. Fill in the boxes in the Internet E-mail Settings dialog box. Make sure that the Account Type setting is set to POP3.

        Note Enter the information from your ISP or from your e-mail administrator in the Incoming mail server box and in the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box.
      6. Click Next, follow the prompts to finish setting up your account, and then click Finish.
      7. Your new profile is created. Go to step 4.
    • Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 and earlier versions of Outlook
      1. Click Add a new e-mail account.

      6. Click Next.
      7. Click Finish.
      8. Your new profile is created. Go to step 4.

Step 4: Set the default profile

  1. On the Mail dialog box, under the When Starting Microsoft Outlook, use this profile box, click to select the new profile that you created in step 3.
  2. Click OK.
  3. Use Outlook to send yourself an e-mail.

    If you successfully receive the e-mail, you have completed troubleshooting the problem.

  2. Click OK.
  3. Click Yes if you are prompted to restart your computer.
  4. Use Outlook to send yourself an e-mail.

    If you successfully receive the e-mail, you have completed troubleshooting the problem.

    If you do not receive the e-mail, unfortunately, this article did not help you. Refer to the "Next steps" section for additional options.
I hope this helps.
