Re: Sending e-mail messages when in Europe

When you are on another network (away from home) you can't use port 25 to send.
To make some changes, go to
In the Search Help box, type "Windows Mail" and click on Search.
Then click on "How do I set up Windows Mail"
follow all of the instructions.

Do I need to change any settings when away from my normal service provider
(Virgin Media) or in Windows Mail?
(I can get round the problem using Mail2web but its a bind!)
I am off to Greece in 2 weeks & would like to sort this.
