Outlook 2003 Send /Recieve Error

Just started useing "Outlook" for email. I get an error msg. that reads in part: "sending reported error (0x800cccof) The connection to the server was interupted. The server responded: 530 authentication required. When I check the "save password" box, it won't stay checked and sometimes it doesn't save my password, because it's easy to see there are too many characters. Any ideas?

do u use gmail?
Gmail has been having problems lately with outlook - mainly ports used to connect to gmails smtp server which is used to "send" mail
ports 25, 465, or 587 should work- but there are some bugs.

if u don't use gmail- what do u use?

No, my ISP is swbell which uses yahoo. Before I was useing "Outlook Express". The reason I changed is because "Outlook 2003" has a good "junk mail" filter which has been a problem with "Outlook Express". I also keep getting a msg. asking for my username and password even if there is no incomeing mail. Sometimes it will just pop up for no reason long after I've checked my mail.
