hi, this is if you are trying to send with msn thanks i have my own mail server

this could just be a problem with your ISP :)

most ISP's do not allow relaying anymore. which means you would have to use their own SMTP server wheather you own one or not.

for instance at home i have tiscali, and i own the domain

so i use

smtp -

at the offices i have bt broadband so i have it configured


also with bt broadband i had to have the domain added to the safe list with bt so it wasnt filtered as spam.

hope this was of some help

I think it was something to do with port 25 being blocked
i have been to run cmd and can get through to port 110 but not to 25. I had downloaded spyware doctor and agv but have uninstalled them as I though that could be problem but even now they are uninstalled this problem persists. I think the port settigns have changed. My windows firewall is off.

have you changed your network at all.. such as a router

doi you have any other security softwareinstalled... if you do turn the lot off and test it.. once tested of course turn it on again, but it will help you narrow the problem down

I havent changed network. Have tried turning norton off but makes no difference

you don't say who your ISP is, but similar intractable problems have arisen for many Orange [and Freeserve and Wanadoo] customers and I hope you aren't one.
