smtp server timeout

  Belfix 17:09 25 Oct 2004

when attemting to send fairly "large" emails I keep getting the message "your smtp server has not responded in 60 seconds do you.." etc.
I can receive large emails ok. I'm using w98, ie6 and oe6 with and without Mcafee Firewall/Viruscan etc. Anybody know how I can increase the time. PS using NTL dialup as my isp.

Go to and open OE6, click on tools>accounts( highlight your a/c) >properties and then click on the advance tab and adjust server time out slider bar.
