Re: receive but can't send emails



I am getting the same thing and Time Warner says it is Belldouth's problem
and Bellsouth says it's Time Warner's problem.....I don't care who's problem
it is I just want it fixed. Oh BTY Bellsouth sent me to a higher more
advanced tech dept and they wanted to charge me to get an answer......
PS outgoing should be 465 (SMTP) and incoming is 995 (POP3) under the
Advanced tab

You are running into a port 25 block. What you experienced is normal.
As a general rule, the owner of the SMTP server you are using must be
the same as the entity providing your Internet connection at that moment.
For more on this anti-spamming issue see

The available workarounds when sending away from home are as follows:

1. Use webmail for sending (via your browser).
2. Ask your home ISP if they have a port other than '25' for SMTP.
3. If you use the same away-from-home connection frequently,
substitute the SMTP server belonging to that connection. This is a bit
tricky, but if you want to go that route, I can provide more details.
4. If you frequently send from multiple locations, get a free Gmail account,
configure it for POP access, set it up in Windows Mail, and use that for
your sending chores. Gmail uses port 465 for SMTP, which is not blocked
like port 25 is.
