I set up a frends laptop using Outlook Express. First time I tried emailing all was well. He took thhe computer home and could receive but not send. Both incoming and outgoing SMTP are correct. I tried everything I knew to do.

A couple of days later I decide to download Thunderbird. It too worked the very first time used then the identical thing happened - I can receive but not send. I am totally stumped!

Incoming is Alltel.net (mail.alltel.net). Outgoing is Cingular wireless (cwmx.com).

I need to get this resolved quick. Please help!

Thanks a bunch -- Mark

Not sure if you verify this already, but this is the common issue when a user can receive but not send emails.

Make sure 'My Server Requires Authentication' option is checked located at the Server tab when you:
Open OE, Tools, Accounts, Mail Tab, Highlight / Select the account and Click on Properties.
