I must use AOL (9.0 Optimized) dialup to access the Internet from work.  Once on, I use Outlook Express (6) to access 2 other non-AOL e-mail accounts.  Am able to receive e-mail for these accounts via OE, but get a variety of error messages when trying to send mail.  Have disabled ZoneAlarm, Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security -- no change.  Using WinXP Home.

1 --> Error Number: 0x800CCC79 (one of the recipients was rejected by the server [however, this was erroneous -- no problem with that recipient's e-mail])
2 --> Error Number: 0x800CCC0F (server has unexpectedly terminated the connection [which was not the case])

You won't be able to use AOL's dialup service to send email through Outlook Express for non-email accounts.

I have never encountered a situation where using AOL as the ISP allows someone to send an email using another --SMTP server-- using a different domain name.    Try using a personal dial-up account that is not AOL to test.  It will go through.

You may want to review: http://www.postcastserver.com/help/Anti-Spam/Port%2025%20Blocking.htm (AOL is not listed as they deny blocking port 25)
and do this:

You can also see if the port is blocked by running a telnet command:

Press Start/Run and enter:

telnet://[emailserver]:25
~~~
Take a look at several different explainations:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win95_3x/Win95/Q_10110667.html

And this one which lists two common thrid party apps:

Replace [emailserver] with the address of any external e-mail server. For example:

mx1.hotmail.com
mail.telenet.net.au

Do not use your ISP's e-mail server address. If the port is not blocked, you should receive a response starting with the '220 ' string.
