Hi DB, we need some more info:
Do you have multiple accounts?
Are you  using exchange or pop server?
How do you connect to the internet?

DB,

In addition to Karen's questions , do give us some more info ..

a) Is receiving email an issue or it is fine ?

b) Do you have some sort of firewall and  have you configured anything in it .. assuming firewall is not blocking any ports

c) Do you have any anti-spam software or add-in attached to your outlook that might be interfering ?

d) Once you click on send/receive button , do you get any error message (with error number) after seeing that the message has not been sent...  Make sure if there is any error displayed in that dialog box and if yes, post it here. That can give us a whole lot clue

No we just have the one exchange account set up within outlook 2003 and this is only happening on 1 machine - we've got another 30 machines which are all fine!  We connect to the internet via a 2meg lease line.  Sending/receiving email isn't an issue, we do have a firewall but our other users have no problems and we get no error messages when the send/receive button is pressed - can you please help?

Cheers

Hi DB, I still think this user tried to set up a POP account. Check his tools/ accounts
