Problems with OE

I have been messing about with a few settings, ( to use another ISP ) i have reverted back to my original ISP (for time being). I have used all the same settings as before (unless i have made a stupid mistake !!!!!) now my email will only recieve NOT SEND !!. Any pointers???. Alan

Which ISP have you reverted back to?
Have you checked that you have the correct outgoing mail serve address specified?

Hi roygbiv. Your ISP should have all the settings on their website, but the most common error is via Tools - Accounts - Properties - Servers. Outgoing mail "" being set wrong.

I have double checked all the settings, they are all the same as before (i wrote them down)and it still isnt sending?????

The other thing that has caught me out on occasion is when I've tried to send an email via one ISP server while I'm logged in to a different ISP. They generally don't allow that.

Just a thought, in Tools/Accounts/Mail/Properties/Connection tab, have you got the box ticked which says 'always connect to this account using' and make sure your ISP name is in the box below?

Hi roygbiv. It could just have been an ISP server problem.
