Angry Outlook Express Won't Send...

sponsored links

okay, I'm running XP Pro SP1. I've got the latest internet explorer / outlook express installed. My email account uses simple POP3 for recieving and SMTP for sending. Well, outlook express refuses to send any emails using my account. It just stays at "Finding Host" when I try to send an email, then it times out. It works fine when I'm recieving mail, finds the host, and downloads my mail perfectly, but if I try to send it just hangs forever. I've checked all my account settings and everything is perfect. Does anybody know what's going on here?

Go to Tools/Accounts..., click the Mail tab, then the properties button for your mail account. Click the Servers tab, then under "Outgoing mail server", make sure that the "my server requires authentication" box is checked.
