You will only be able to send through your own ISP. Change the SMTP setting to the same as your account and it should work.

it did but refuses now. my isp is aol and when i ring them they just say thedont support outlook

That is correct,AOL do not support Outlook, unless you upgrade (pay more). I suggest using GMAIL, as it works OK and it is free.You could use HOTMAIL, but that tends to collect a lot of spam.

I would also suggest a GOOGLE search
[type in EMAIL], for a list of providers.
