Problem sending messages in OE

Hope this is the right place for this query Happy

In the last few days ive noticed ive not been able to send mail from my OE. When i try, it says

"The message could not be sent. No sender was specified. Please check your news account configuration".

No idea what it means by checking my news account configuration :S And of course i have specified a sender! Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks for any help.

This one happened to ME! And yes I did have a sender specified, BUT here's where I fixed it...

In the address book I found that the person had no email address entry. I fixed that and the mail went out.

Call this one an oddity.

Thanks for your reply. I just tried that and even though the e-mail addresses were in the address book, it still didnt want to send :S I think its some problem to do with the from field and the 'pop' thing. I dont use OE so much and so have no idea why its stopped working properly all of a sudden? Sad
