Seems like off and on the last week or so, I've had problems with Outlook Express hanging.
I use AVG...and right now when checking e-mail it timed out so I stopped Outlook Express, but I see the AVG e-mail scanner icon is still going around on the desktop.
Sometimes the mail hangs up in transmission, it seems, even if no attachments.
Then today I got the socket error 10061.

Socket error 10061 is a Connection Refused error sent to you by the server. You could not make a connection because the target machine actively refused it. The most common cause is a misconfigured server, full server, or incorrect Port specified by the client.

Try to change your SMTP port from 25 to 587.

Broni: My ISP server had me change some info for the outgoing mail. So, at least for right now it seems to be working.
Thanks...I will keep in mind your info just in case.
