Cant send emails from outlook using AOL Broadb

  stlucian 12:55 27 Oct 2006

I have aol broadband. I do some work for people working from home and they have given me incoming mail server info; outgoing mail server info; user name and passwords to set up pop3 accounts in outlook. I have set up the accounts and can receive emails ok but cannot send emails from the accounts. I also set up my aol in outlook and can SEND and receive with aol email but just cant send with other email accounts. Can anyone advise.

If you are connected to the internet with AOL you *MUST* use AOL's SMTP server to send mail, regardless of which account you are retrieving mail with or which address you are using in outgoing mail.

In an attempt to control the use of their servers for sending spam, ISPs restrict the use of their SMTP server to their own customers. This is done by requiring that you connect to the internet through them to send mail.
