hi, I have the same problem using outlook 2000, but with ntlworld. My main computer with outlook 2000 works fine, but my laptop connected by a belkin wireles router suffers the 0x800ccc79 error. Both comps run xp home. all settings are identical.
if i understand this you need to set your smtp to what NTL my friend has the same problem when he went from wanadoo to another BB supplier he still uses he wanadoo email address but uses his BB smtp settings
