  1. Told y'all i would bring a new problem, and i keep to my word.....

    My buddy uses Outlook Express, and he usually sends out mail via. a third party address.
    Recently the internet company has introduced a new net service thru gmail, and now when he tries to do his usual send off, they are denying him. He called the net company, and was informed that they do not allow that any more.

    Is there any way to bypass this?

    btw: anybody got a STMP address to put in the account properties server?

    Grazie :)

    see this issue re open relay

    if joe user has an ISP subscription to say xyz.com, then only when attached to
    xyz.com can he send email per the above.

    the work around is to use something like the gmail.com webbased email using a browser.

    to use gmail directly -

    server name: pop.gmail.com Port: 995 use SSL

    enter user name and password in your email client

    outgoing server: smtp.gmail.com Port: 587 use TLS if available

    ok new problem TOTALLY unrelated to what i mentioned above.

    When the boss goes onto Outlook he sees the mail he would receive for the morning so far, but when he turns his back they disappear!!!! even mail that;s like more than two days disappear. Here's the kicker....sometimes they COME BACK ON THEIR OWN!!!!
    I NEED DR HOUSE!!! WHERE'S DR. HOUSE!!!!!????

    Nope. None of the above. In fact, it's a very, very, VERY brand new system.

    tie the email accounts through gmail forwarding, then use pop3 or imap access in outlook to access the gmail account.

    I prefer thunderbird - it's much better than outlook.
