Outlook problem

  nick1256 06:52 08 Jul 2005

I've just set up my new PC to run e-mails on Office outlook and have been receiving them OK but sending is a differant matter, they just sit there in the outbox and won't send. I've configured the options to send straight away but still nothing.
Any help please?

This is just a thought, but have you correctly put the smtp address in? When you configure Outlook, there is a test button to check that you have done all the actions correctly. Have you tried that?

I use Outlook too. I have 3 email accounts, but my broadband provider is Wanadoo. I receive emails sent to any of my 3 email acocunts, but I can only send using the Wanadoo account. If I try to send using my Eurobell account, the message will just sit there forever in the Outbox. This is normal I think. So if I really want to send an email using a non-Wanadoo account, I use webmail instead of Outlook. Maybe this is your problem?

Thanks Steve26300 I knew it would be something simple like that, all I did was to fill in the user & email box,s to sort it - blxxdy computers!
