Hi everyone, I got this problem with office outlook 2003. I am trying to use the pop3 account to send email and it giving me error 0x80042109. I can receive the email, but can't send it. I started experiencing this problem when I updated to xp office 2003 pro. I did everything: re-installing the software at least 3 times, changing the profile, download service packs....nothing works. Anyone knows how to fix it? All the info such as passwords and etc is correct, i have a laptop and was trying to access the same account from there it works prefect, but not from my desktop.

I am running:
XP Home
Xp Office 2003
Norton Antivirus

Please help me...

What is the  outgoing mail server you are giving ?

What ISP are you using ?

Are you running any Firewall ? Temporarily disable firewall to see if that would help or
allow port 25 (incoming traffic) in the firewall and see if that would help .

Check if this one relates to your case
