    I am using gmail and I just got my wife all set up. I am working on her outlook express to get it set up. It is checking email but when I try to send it says The message could not be sent. You do not have any accounts configured for sending email. please verify your account configuration. Far as I know I have it set up right, I even used their tool to set it up. HELP!!!:confused:

    you have to setup the pop3 and smtp server addresses as part of the account to send/recieve email.

    i wasn't aware gmail could be accessed thru oe but then there's new stuff happening every day.

    Yep, I did all that, its working. You can access it with OE too, its pretty easy, except for the default thing is not spelled out in the instructions. Got it though.
