Have you tried sending emails to yourself? In otherwords, send one from hotmail to tiscali and see if it arrives and visa versa.

Yes tried that but still no joy.

What email client are you using i.e. Outlook express, or are you using the web mail.

Sorry, just noticed it's Outlook, I'll have another think.

On the same track, have you tried sending and receiving on web mail and not Outlook?

I am having a little bother at the moment to .
but i have half sorted it,
I still had the welcome letter from hotmail,and went into junk e-mail filters,I then took the default option ,seemsthe most secure option was blocking my mail.
hope it helps .Rick.

OK, that was my next question, that's why I wanted you to try it.

Good luck, hope all goes well.

Have tried what you all say but to no avail, my web mail all seemedto work ok untill about a week ago.
Can i just mention that i dont have any problems with outlook just tiscali and hotmail, and the problems i'm having is just sending messages, they are not getting recieved.
Any more ideas?

Are you connected to your default ISP (Tiscali?) when you are trying to send messages?

I have the same problem I think.

I'm on Tiscali B/B and recently all my O/G mail produces error:-

The host '[email protected]' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'Tiscali', Server: '[email protected]', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

All account, server, connection, advanced settings are correct (I'm experienced in manually configuring e-mail settings), yet the problem still exists.

As web-mail works OK, it could be an OE6 problem, but it was working OK until 3 days ago.
Tiscali tech support are looking at problem now
