Suddenly Outlook won't send messages from other accounts

by totaldrummer / March 26, 2005 3:21 PM PST

I use Outlook 2003 on Windows XP . For the last two years, I've used Outlook to retrieve email messages from two web-based POP3 accounts and send messages from those accounts.

Within the last two weeks, Outlook will retrieve the messages properly, but won't send messages from those accounts anymore- a dialogue box comes up saying the send feature didn't work because, although the server was found, there was no response from the server.

I've checked and re-checked the server and port settings from my web-based accounts and they haven't changed.

Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Thank you.

The url got me nowhere. Looks like they need to help you out.

Sorry, but I couldn't find a way to make an account (free) to see what the issue could be. I will share that most webmail users are suffering as various services overhaul their offerings to kill spam or bored engineers "improve" things.

Best of luck,
