Unable to send email from Inbox - No transport provider
Posted on 2002-05-16
On a peer to peer network
Using AOL 6.0 to connect to the internet
I have installed wms.exe from win95tools directory.
Services listed are:
Personal Address Book
Microsoft Mail parameters
Path to postoffice C:\Exchange\wgpo0000
Service to connect at startup: LAN
Logon to postoffice set correctly
Enable delivery to Address Types: Network/Postoffice (Only option available, there was more at one time when I was trying different options but they have now disappeared)
Recipient processed in following order
Microsoft Mail on C:\Exchange\wgpo0000
Microsoft Fax Transport
Test Surname Properties
Email address <firstname.lastname@example.org> (I have tried with and without brackets)
E-mail type: SMTP
I found this problem by using Quickbooks 2002 to email an invoice.
It is supposed to be MAPI-compliant.
When I email an invoice it appears in the Inbox saying
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Subject: test email
Sent: 16/05/02 22:30:33
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
'Test Surname' on 16/05/02 20:00:12
No transport provider was available for delivery to this recipient.
When I compose a message in Inbox and send it I get the same result.
Outlook Express 5 on the same PC works fine.
I normally use Turnpike 6.01 and AOL for my email, both working fine.
But ... the Quickbooks program insists on sending via Windows Messaging :-(
I have also downloaded Eudora (MAPI-compliant) and made it the default email client, but Quickbooks still insists on using Windows Messaging. Haven't found a way of changing Quickbooks but I should still be able to send an email from Windows Messaging shouldn't I???
Help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
