outlook 2003, sbs w/exchange, outgoing mail sit in mailbox

Last Modified: 2010-03-06
Hi, I've set up a new user (xp pro logging onto domain) with administrator rights on sbs premium. I've configured the mailbox as per the rest of the users (which seem to work fine). I can recieve messages but cant send. No error message is given. This is probably a straight forward setting but I have spent the last hour trying to figure out what is going on and cant spend much more time at it... any help would be greatly appreciated.

PS I've also setup the same account under the POP3/SMTP internet email settings on the PC localy, same result as above.
Which is leading me to believe it may be out going mail restrictions/ firewall with local outlook or on the local client PC.

I've steup the exchange mailbox on another PC (who's mailbox is sending) and it works fine.

Thanks in advance
