Recently began to have problems sending email using Outlook Express.

I get the following error message

An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'mail.virgin.net', Server: 'mail.virgin.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '421 tmailb1.svr.pol.co.uk: Too many concurrent SMTP connections; please try again later.', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Error Number: 0x800CCC67

I also have an email account with Tiscali and also get the same message.

I dont connect to the internet with either Virgin or Tiscali but have never had any problems uptill a week or so ago.

I still use my virgin email as I have been using that one for about 2 years now so dont really want to change it.

Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers
TIA

You need to set up OE with the smtp server of the isp that you are connected with, or else get your own smtp server (not difficult either).

With whom do you connect? You will need to find out their smtp server name.
