Outlook Express just stopped sending e-mails yesterday. I receive them just fine. Nothing in parameters were changed. No new software was loaded. When it trys to send an email -- the logon screen for the server pops up --- if I say "OK" it just pops up again. If I cancel if fails on that task then trys to recieve messages which works. I have tried changing the outbound parameters several times.

Thoughts?

could be a problem at the ISP .... you changed nothing and receiving works fine so i would guess it's on the other end
this happens at home to me once in a while

What error message do you get in the send and receive dialog box when you see the email is unable to be sent ?

Sometimes it is weird but i have seen just deleting the email account and recreating it has solved the issue.

Can you store your password for the account (remember password) and then try sending it  and see if that would help.

Have you tried to send an email to yourself and checked what happens ?

Does it happen sending email to anyone irrespective of whether you are sending an attachment or not ?

so when the login box appears, does it keep appearing even though you are giving the correct password ?

What happens when you do this
>> Can you store your password for the account (remember password) and then try sending it  and see if that would help

Does it ask for password even if you save it ?

In the end it ended up being dependent on where I was located I could hook up at Home, ok, when I hooked up at a business OK, when I was at a hotel BAD, resturant Wi-FI --- Bad
