Windows 2000 ICS and Outlook Attachment
Posted on 2002-03-10
In my office I have a comptuer that is running Windows 2000 Professional with ICS, sharing a DSL connection. In another room I have a Windows 98 computer that is connecting to the internet through the Windows 2000 computer.
The Windows 98 machiene is able to browse the web, and use MS Outlook. Within outlook I am able to send and recieve mail, but I am unable to send attachments of any sort. I have tried uploading files through hotmail, but they time out as well. Below is the error I recieve when outlook is unable to send the attachment:
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Subject 'Re: testing', Account: 'patwongaia.com', Server: 'mail.mindspring.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '421 maynard.mail.mindspring.net SMTP incoming data timeout - closing connection.', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
I am using mindspring DSL but I am trying to send mail through my company email address, patwongaia.com.
