i am running widows xp with blueyonder broadband and have just had a new tower to replace a faulty one and have had to re install everything afresh but have encountered a problem with my isp assigned e mail account..
i can receive e mails to it but cannot send them .. each time itry i get the following response..
"No sender was specified. Please check your News Account Configuration"
Has anybody any idea how to correct this?
i hope it is simple as im not very clued up on pc tlk so in idiots terms if you can
thank you guys in advance for any help with this matter..

Is this a normal email account? Is the mention of new accounts normal to you?

If this is a normal email account, I assume you're using Outlook or Outlook Express. Go to Tools, Email Accounts, View or change existing email accounts. Select the account and choose Advanced. Check that the broadband conenction is selected as the connection used.

Also disable scanning of outgoing email in any antivirus software.

I'm groping really, but this might help.
