View Full Version : MS Outlook 2003 problem

11-08-2005, 01:38 PM
I can't send email on my new PC. It gives every indication that things are working (I can receive email). However, when I attempt to send anything it says "preparing to send/receive" at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen but the email just sits in the outbox. Does anyone know if there is a setting I need to change in Outlook? Thanks. :confused:

Check under the email settings, (for whoever's email you're checking), what the outgoing / smtp server is.

This might be wrong.

It could also be your anti-virus outgoing mail scan giving the problem.

Does your ISP require password to be set for outgoing mail ??

Open Outlook 2003 and go to <Tools><Email Accounts> then run the wizard you find there to set up or edit your email account.
You should find any problem there.
You can test your settings will in the setup/edit procedure and it will let you know if anything is wrong.
