View Full Version : can't send mail from outlook when connected via dialup

02-13-2004, 03:58 PM
I've had no trouble sending email when on DSL, but my DSL is down for a few days due to a phone line problem, and I'm reduced to using dial up . . . and I'm suddenly no longer able to send mail. (Receiving still works fine.)

Anyone else ever experienced this? Any ideas?

Any help appreciated! Thanks!

What dial up service are you using. Some services allow you to get mail from different mail servers but only allow you to send through thiers.

Many ISP's do that to hinder spamming.
Mine does it.

In your e-mail program, switch yourdomain.com in the outgoing SMTP mail server to your ISP's SMTP outgoing mail server.
