Unable to send e-mails

  ddddddd 13:56 08 Sep 2004

I have a problem sending e-mails. When I click SEND, its slow in connecting ( connecting sign at bottom of page for approx 16 secs )so outlook express puts the message in the outbox,then an error message comes up YOUR SERVER HAS UNEXPECTEDLY TERMINATED THE CONNECTION ERROR NUMBER OX8OOCCCOF although I am still connected to the internet. if I exit outlook express , it asks me if I want to try it again, but its unsuccessful ( the error box comes up again)
Once I have left outlook express and then go back in , it sends it immediately , but will not send another message .
I am using windows xp home .
Can anyone offer help please

Start OE and then go to Tools>Accounts.. Highlight your account and select "Properties".. Now, click on the "Servers" tab..

On the new page, right at the bottom, put a checkmark in "My server requires authentication".. Now, click on the "Settings tab beside it..

Make sure the "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" is checked.. Apply and okay out.

Thanks for that tip, as you see, I have taken you up on that. I must have been absent on the day Vog gave out that little gem.
