outlook express sending problems

Microsoft Outlook 2007
February 19, 2010 at 08:33:40
Specs: Windows XP
I have Outlook Express 6. Recently when I send an email, it goes out normally. But it does not arrive to the recipient. There is a copy in the sent folder as usual. The settings are all correct, My ISP checked the ports (not blocked), and my antivirus does not scan for email. Firewall is XP. By the way I can receive, just not send. There is no error message. I have talked to server 4 times and they keep saying it must be a microsoft problem.

have you tried going to the web-based email from your provider and sending an e-mail from there?
I quit using OE for that same problem...TROUBLE TROUBLE and after switching to a web-based e-mail don't have those problems anymore. OE has a LIMITED size mailbox whereas the web-based ones don't have limits. Also much better spam protection in web-based and you NEVER have to change your e-mail address when changing ISPS....Just a thought....it's up to you.

People think because they use for example comcast....that you HAVE to use your comcast e-mail address...WRONG! That is only for if you have problems with your ISP.

If you think of changing you might try Yahoo (my favorite) or Hotmail which I think is Live Mail now.

I have all my clients information in express and I would have to change all my business cards etc with a new address. I saw others had this problem. It seems there would be an answer to how it happened and how to fix it. Thanks for your reply

Ok, I found this with google, there seems to be a fix for that:

Let us know how you make out.

I would eventually dump OE if you ever get the chance, you can easily import all your addresses to yahoo or whoever. As far as business cards, you can eventually change that too.

Make sure your default account is the one accepted by your ISP. ISPs will transfer 'your' incoming emails to a strange account, but will not accept 'your' outgoing emails that it doesn't recognize as it's own.
