Outlook will not send emails

  kiddgame2000 15:12 27 Apr 2008

I am trying to set up my parents tiscali account to work through outlook however i can only get it to recieve emails not send them.

The following appears when i try to send anything

An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Server: 'smtp.tiscali.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '554 Sorry, your non-local IP address (??.???.??.???) is not allowed to send email via me.', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 554, Error Number: 0x800CCC6F

I removed the IP address above as i didn't know how wise it was to publish that on the internet.

Has anyone any suggestions?

I have followed all the instructions on tiscali's website to the letter and nothing is happening?

have you got the correct smtp settings?

Try putting SMTP in capitals, if you haven't done so already

It's quite a while since I was with tiscali but isn't it [email protected]

Open outlook express and select accounts, highlight the account then select properties then servers

your mail in ( Pop3) and out ( SMTP ) should have the servers name

down the bottom of that page is the box for authentication tick it open settings and tck the box for log on as required ( ie use same setting as incoming mail )

Your server names are correct, case is irrelevant. Delete any/all emails in the outbox and create a new one - try port 587 for SMTP (look under the Advanced tab). Is it a brand new account? If they've been with another ISP, try the old ISP's SMTP server for a couple of tests.
