Outlook Express 6

I've just installed Tiscali broadband with the existing Freeserve dial-up connection as a back up. I'm having difficulty in sending E-mails because of the following error:- "Error 550 - Action not taken,Mailbox unavailable". Does anyone have a solution, please?

I suspect that this is because you have not set up OE to work with your new ISP - you may well find that it works perfectly well with your Freeserve account, but you will need to set up a Tiscali account showing your Tiscali e-mail address.

Have a look at this web page click here under SMTP errors. I don't know if it will help, but it as helped me with other OE problems.

Thank you, everyone. I've gone back to my Freeserve E-mail and all is OK. One day, maybe I'll try using Tiscali again. Incidentally, Nipsen 2, that's a jolly useful 'errors'site.
Digital id - there you've got me. Sorry bigyin69. Wish you luck. Signing off. George

If you are being asked for digital ID look in OE >
Tools > Options > Security and make sure that the boxes for 'Encrypt contents...' and 'Digitally sign all outgoing messages' are not checked.

If you want to get digital ID they are available free from click here
