microsoft outlook send problems

i am experiencing problems when sending emails using MS outlook, if i send messages with attachments i keep getting errors, although in the end they do go.

For example , i sent a email with a word attachment approx 400K, and when i press send, the outlook send /recieve progress details show this message:-

Task' reported error(ox8004210B):'the operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server.

Task'sending and recieving' reported error (ox800ccc0B) unknown error (ox800ccc0B).

During the sending phase the outlook progress details showed '10 of 13' tasks completed successfully,

I only sent 1 email!!

I have set the timeout to 4 mins in the 'tools/email account/more settings/advanced'

The internet connection activity is stable and working continuosly througout the progress,
but this still happens.
does anyone know what is going on?

I am on winXP SP2 office XP, come to think of it? this problem seems to be more apparent since SP2.

Thanks VoG
I have SP3 already installed, so i used the registry as described in the link to edit the outlook profile.

It now works great!!!
many thanks.
