Getting this error message when trying to send email on newly installed XP PRO system.

VBScript: McAfee virus scan.
----------------------------
Command sent was: RCPT TO: EMAIL ADD>

Response received is: 550 RCPT TO: EMAIL ADD> Relaying not allowed-please use SMTP AUTH

McAfee security center is installed.

Any ideas how I can get OE to work? Have done a google and still clueless. TIA.

I disabled virus scan of email an tried to send again, this time got an OE error message (not mcafee error message) does anyone know why this is happening?

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'xxxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxx'. Subject ', Account: 'mail.virgin.net', Server: 'mail.virgin.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 RCPT TO:<xxxxxxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxx> Relaying not allowed - please use SMTP AUTH', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79

Problem
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected
by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'name@domain.co.uk'.
Subject 'Title Sun 1.19pm', Account: 'test', Server:
'smtp.fast2host.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 Authentication is required for relay', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550,Error Number: 0x800CCC79


Solution
Have you checked that authentication is turned on in Outlook? Under Servers,
ensure that the "My server requires authentication" box is checked.
