webcam problems

  mikeystipe 18:36 22 Jun 2008


I have what I'm sure is a basic webcam problem.

Using a Creative Webcam NX Pro and associated software (but willing to try other software with it)

I'm planning on setting up a website and page but at the moment I'm just testing.

When I try to email myself a picture via the Webcam software I get a "530: Authentication error"

From what I've read this seems to be an issue with SMTP settings. As far as I can see my settings are ok.

I'm mailing to as my outgoing mail server and I'm using Outlook 2003 as my email on my PC. I have a broadband connection.

Any assistance/pointers would be appreciated!

Try uninstalling & re-installing the webcam drivers?

I've done as you suggested but without success.

Any other ideas appreciated.
