n1ghtrain, unfortunately you posted this in the wrong forum so I have requested it be moved. However, while we wait for that...I will admit, I don't understand that much about OE. I use Thunderbird because I don't like Outlook or Outlook Express. I wish I could help but I am getting you in the proper forum for help, ok? Liz

Does your ISP require server authentication? While in OE click on the 'tools' menu and choose 'account' click the 'mail' tab and find your account and highlight it by clicking on it, then choose properties. In properties click on the 'server' tab at the bottom of that window is 'my server requires authenication' put a check in there, save, close and try to send again.

Something I found out when I was setting up my new account the other day for my business. I had to set it differently than what I thought.

What is your Pop3 and your SMTP settings. They may not be what you think they should be? Did you talk to your carrier about those? Liz

You may get the error message

"The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was '[email protected]' . Subject 'The monthly collection', Account: 'Test (Tiscali)', Server: 'smtp.xxxxxxx.xxx', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 relaying to prohibited by administrator', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79


Possible Solution
This problem happens because your version of Outlook Express is set up to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL).

Tools->Accounts->Properties->Advanced Tab. Be sure This server requires a secure connection is unchecked.

Another possible idea: If there are several emails in your outbox, or if there is a large one, try removing some of them. Try sending an email to yourself.

You say there are other computers that have no problem? Check settings on one of those and make sure yours are identical.

If all fails, you may have to create a new account. The basic settings are shown here (substitute your specific wording).
