I recently upgraded my laptop from Win98se to XP Pro (sp1) and have installed all but the last few updates. I am now on the road trying to get and send email.
I can do both with my vpn. However, when I try to pickup and send email on my non-vpn account (austin.rr.com), I can receive email but cannot send. When I try to send an email, it appears in my outbox and then my sent folder. However, I also get an IMMEDIATE reply from the "system administrator" saying that it could not be delivered and giving the reason of "relaying denied". In the smtp server field I have tried putting the smtp server of my isp back in Austin, and the server of the cable modem I am using on the road, and also my vpn smtp server. All get the same "relaying denied" reply from the "system administrator".
What setting must I change? Thanks.
