I have Outlook 2000 installed on my laptop. This was installed by my company and I used this successfully in my office to send and receive mail.
Recently my company went chapter 11, they told us to keep the laptops, but they are probably configured for the company server LAN etc. Anyway,
I have dial-up service for email at home through netzero. I was able to add netzero and send and receive email via outlook through the dial-up service. The problem is when I travel and use hotel high speed internet connections outgoing mail does not send. I can receive, but not send.
Also, we have cable internet service in my home. I purchased a linksys router and card for faster service etc on my laptop. Again, I can receive mail through outlook, but all mail I wish to send gets stuck in the outbox?
How do I resolve this problem?
Thanks,
Rick

Hi,

The first problem is because you cant send mail through your ISPs mail server when using a different ISP, try using their webmail service instead.

Dont know about the second problem though

The SMTP settings are probably incorrect on your laptop. They need to be changed to your current ISP's SMTP server. If you are travelling you will still have the same problem. I would reccomend or see if your current ISP also offers webmail for when you travel.
