    I'm trying to use Outlook 2003 to send/receive email via Netscape ISP. Operating System is Windows XP. I receive mail in Outlook OK but can not send mail. I get an error message telling me the SMTP server was found but does not respond. Any ideas?

    You most likely need to use the SMTP server of your own ISP. While you may be able to read from other provider's POP boxes, most providrs do not allow sending by clients other than their own. So if you're having mail accounts with both providers A and B, and A is your own provider, you define POP server from B but SMTP server from A for your B mail account. While most SMTP servers wil give you some reject info, others just play dumb.
    Hope this helps.

    My ISP is Netscape. When I configured Outlook, I used "POP3.isp.netscape.com" for the incoming server and am receiving email via Outlook. I used "smtp.isp.netscape.com" for the outgoing server and email does not leave my outbox. The error message I receive indicates the server was contacted but does not respond.
