    Hi
    Im getting no output via email client due to the "SMTP server rejected your attempt to send".

    Also, using ePrompter the same ISP gives me a Vsock read error. Does anyone have any advice for me (other that buy a Mac)???

    Using Outlook 2003 and/or Thunderbird. Neither will send email. I'm afraid I may have messed up something somehow but Im bewildered.

    I walked thru settings with Cox (east) and there were none set incorrectly as best we could tell.

    Any help is appreciated.

    when i switched to verizon i had that kind of prob.

    look in outlook express>tools>accounts...highlight your default...>properties>servers.........see if there's a check in the "my server requires authentification" box

    if not check it...apply>ok


    that's what fixed mine way back when.
    your sure all other pop and smtp info is listed right?

    hope that was some help

    Thanks for the reply. I'm using Outlook 2003 and I checked it, the box is as you stated.

    Appreciate your suggestions.

    make sure you have the smtp server address entered correctly in outlook/oe.

    I did. As it turned out I had my SGF firewall turned off. When I turned it back on everything worked. I don't understand why the firewall turned off would block ports 25 and 110?
