Winsock 2.0 for Windows 95 is available. That has solved many problems.
I don't know the exact location. You may go to
www.microsoft.com/support/
and see in the serive pack area.

E-mail your new server and ask them, How to setup your out going mail with "Microsoft Mail Outlook Express." Every Server has a different mail "pop" address. Your computer needs their MAIL  configurations.. You "can't send mail" if their server doesn't know who to "return" the mail to.. Make Since?.. Thats why you get the error.

Let me know! Herman, Inventor, HTML & VB Programming

This means "No route to host"

Add the IP addr and domain name in HOSTS. and LMHOSTS.

ie

xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx           pop.this.domainname
