Outlook issue



I have a friend visiting who is running Outlook on her PC, She can receive messages fine, but sending does not seem to work. Do I have to set up an outgoing mail acct using my ISP's mail server, or should hers work?
her outgoing settings are mail.bigpond.com whilst mine are mail.internode.on.net, both are smtp servers I'd have to check the security etc. How would I change the outgoing server without changing her settings in tools Account Settings.

Her mail is sitting in the outbox but will not send even though she can receive ok.

IIRC, some ISP's insist you're connected to their network to send mails, whether this applies to your/her ISP IDK.

You will have to change the SMTP settings in Outlook/Accounts AFAIK, or via Mail in Control Panel.

I had an issue on VM a while ago, where my mail was refusing to send. It turned out I had login to Webmail, clear any attachments that I'd sent which cleaned my mailbox size down, and allowed sending via Outlook's POP3/SMTP again.

That's true - there are others (and you can use googlemail ) that just insist that you authenticate (pass a username / password ) - that is a simpler way not to have to reconfigure whilst on the move.
