    Various ISPs don't allow sending emails other than their own using Outlook Express.

    I have Net Zero and cannot use Outlook Express to send email other than Net Zero email.

    Would it work to install SMTP freeware to use OE and send emails over the Net Zero internet connection? Has anyone tried this? What freeware works?

    I found 602Pro LAN SUITE - which sounds like it might work. But it is 13.7 megs to download. I would like to hear from someone before downloading something that big.

    Most ISPs only allow you to use the smtp server if you are coinnected to them.

    the way around this if you have several email acounts is to change everyone of them to have the smtp as the one you are connected to.
    so if youmare connected to netzero & want to use an account with a different isp or non isp related email account, change the setings in oe to put the netzero smtp server in the smtp server for that account.

    Didn't realize it was that simple. Will give it a go.

    Thanks, Derek.

    I think that will work for incoming only though....if you want to have it appear that your email came from that address, I think you'll still have to go the other route ;)

    I have that problem all the time as I travel and use different ISPs at different locations......

    Thanks for your input. My regular ISP is down for awhile and so I just grabbed the free Net Zero. Setting up SMTP for Net Zero works great now (per Derek's help).

    Mark this resolved! :D

    Great, glad it worked, and will mark solved.

    Can you go out too so that it looks like your 'normal' email address sent the email?????

    I may have to look into that ;)
