Outlook 97 Won't Send E-Mail
Posted on 1998-09-04
Have a Windows NT 4.0 Network and users using Windows 95.
One user has Outlook 97 on his system. Not consistently but often,
this user receives an SMPT error (sometimes) that he cannot connect
to the pop server. No one else on the network receives this error.
Once connected, and when checking for and delivering mail, the system
just sits there and does nothing. You cannot select anything. The mail
still remains in the outbox until the system is rebooted. I've tried repairing
the mailboxes, adding the SR-1 for 97, and changing the timeout for connection
to the pop server. None of these things seem to have any impact for any length of time.
I'm at my witts end. I do not understand what the problem is
This also happens with Inbox also. No other machine on my network is having this type
of problem with Outlook. Any ideas or a place where I can start to troubleshoot this problem other
than uninstalling and reinstalling?
