Unable to send e-mails or open Messenger

  plb1972 19:39 20 Jul 2006

I am able to open gmail and recieve e-mails, but cannot send any. I cannot access hotmail or MSM messenger either, and I cannot upload images to the net.

Does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be?

Have you tried briefly turning your firewall off,make sure you turn it back on.You may need to configure your firewall if you have installed a new one or had an update.

Hope this helps

Tried the firewall, no joy with that.

Are you using Internet Explorer,maybe trying these and see if any luck. click here
click here at least if these work,we will know a repair of IE is needed.

I use both IE and Firefox side by side (still a bit skeptical of Firefox). With Firefox, I cannot even get into my Gmail account.

Personally i cannot fault Firefox after 4 months of use,but thats not the problem.

Maybe trying an IE repair first. click here

It is outlook. Again, it recieves packets from gmail, but is unable to send them.
