    Arrrggghhh. This is driving me nuts!! I can't seem to send emails to certain recipients. when I try to send out an email from Outlook 2003 it pretends to send it but then immediately drops a message in my inbox saying:

    Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

    550 Error: Please Authenticate via POP first (106.9)

    (note the address has been blanked out to protect the innocent)

    I cannot find reference to this error anywhere in the documentation (it refers to 550 erros, but has no advice for this specific one). I have tried shutting down my virus scanner and reducing the junk mail filtering thinking maybe that would help. No luck.

    Can anyone offfer me some advice before I go insane and chuck my computer out the window. This is a rather time sensitive email. Thanks in advance for any help.
