Hi all,

I'm experiencing this problem since yesterday.

I simply cannot send emails using OE.

I have 2 accounts, one is a proz-based account and the other one is a yahoo account.

I have an error message when trying to send emails from both accounts.

I double checked the server properties for both, retyped them.

Nothing changed

Any clue?

thanks in advance

One or two things.. Nov 28, 2006

1. Reboot

2. Contact the server; the fault is probably there

3. Apart from that, await better informed opinions fropm others at ProZ

I don't think it depends on the server, since I CAN send messages using the web-based account.

The problem relies on OE.

Outlook Expres Nov 28, 2006

You can use another email software such as Thunderbird, which is free and works really well.

are you with Tele2? Nov 28, 2006

Hello Francesca,

I had the same problem yesterday with my yahoo account. My italian provider Tele2 changed the mail options and for the mail sent changed the configuration from 25 to 587 ( to prevent spam they say). That's why you receive e-mail but can't send them.
You must also changed the smtp configuration and write smtp.mail.yahoo.it instead of your provider smtp.
It does work!


Bye

Cécile
