I placed this question recently and the problem appeared to have been solved.
However I am now having the same trouble again.

Previous question at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_21920615.html
-----------------------------
If I forward an email from outlook it fails within a few seconds. The message is
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      'xxxx@hotmail.com' on 22/07/2006 08:33
            551 Bad Recipient

If I create a new email using the same email address the the message is sent OK.
Can anyone please advise.
Thanks John

I notice that both that failed emails have a hotmail address, would this be anything to do with the problem, as far as I can tell other non hotmail addresses can be forwarded to.

I disabled xp firewall and it appeared to forward the email, I will try that with the next forward I need.

The problem that raises is how to get the XP FW protection, I suppose I could keep switching it on and of but that seems a bit long winded?

Thanks

I found this text

To remedy this, I used to put the OUTLOOK.EXE executable in the Exceptions list in \
Firewall settings. To do so, go to Control Panel -> Windows Firewall Exceptions Tab \
-> Add Program and select Outlook from the list, or if it's not in the list, just \
browse to the location of the OUTLOOK.EXE (normally in C:\Program Files\Microsoft \
Office\ folder).

Anyone any views?

XP firewall is no protection in a NETWORKED environment with AV and antispam protection(actually it is a nuisance and is disabled through group policy on most networks) ....if this is a home user or single user environment u still require a good personal AV and antispam....but meanwhile if u want to keep windows firewall on then add it to ur exception list........just click add program and brows to the outlook.exe in the program files....
