I have posted this on the network thread but there were no answers.
I recently had a problem connecting with an Orange migrated account; these problems were solved by replacing my Belkin with a Livebox; however, I am left with a problem that when sending email through Outlook, it tries to connect with the SMTP server but(sometimes)fails.
I have switched off my Mcafee outbound mail scanner and reduced the firewall on the Livebox to the lowest setting.
I am running Office 2007, Vista and Mcafee; the same problem manifests itself on my laptop running Office 2003, XP and Norton.
