Outlook Express

Set up a friends email account in Outlook Express 6. He’s using Sky wireless broadband on a laptop with XP media centre.
The account details are correct but if he tries to send a test message to himself it sends OK but is never received. If I try opening the message in
the ‘sent’ items folder and use ‘reply to’ his email address that too sends OK but again but is never received but if I do the same again but ‘forward’ the message instead it sends and is received OK.
A test message to my email address sends OK and I receive it OK. A reply from me to him is received OK. Some messages from his contacts do not arrive either. I suspect something wrong somewhere but where? I’ve dumped the ‘dbx’ files but this didn’t make any difference. There are no error messages of any kind. Any ideas anyone as to why the test message to himself always fails?
