    As a general rule you can only send mails through an isp's mail server if you are connected to that ISP. At the moment you are still connecting though your old dialup isp but trying to send through your broadband mail server. This is known as mail relaying, and like the message says, it ain't allowed, otherwise spammers would have a field day.
    As a work around, you can either just use the other email account and wait for the bb to get connected, or change the mail server in OE to your old isp. To do this go to Tools, accounts, and mail, highlight the new email account and click properties, click on servers, and change the outgoing mail to your current ISPs (you can find out what this is by looking in the settings for the other email account). Of couorse you will need to change it back once you are connecting to the bb
    When you change to bb you will get a similar message when trying to send through your old email account, so you will need to change the outgoing mail server in the old account to your new ISPs.

    Hope this helps
