Why can't I send email from outlook while using wireless connections?

I can send and receive email using Outlook when I plug my computer into a LAN - but as soon as I unplug and go wireless I can only receive emails in Outlook? I have no other problems at all with the wireless connection. Do you have any suggestions for how you repair this problem? I saw that someone posted previously with the same issue but did not find a solution - just an explanation.

Thanks for the help.

Task 'DCP email - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted.  If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Thanks for the response.

Is the wireless network maintained by yourself or a 3rd party,  Many 3rd party wireless neworks will use methods such as SMTP redirection to transparently alter the way your email is handled.

The wireless network is my own homw network running through a standard Linksys router.

This sounds like a firewall issue on your wireless router. Are you able to edit your router's settings?

I think that I can edit my router settings - isn't that standard on Linksys routers? What do I need to do in the editing process?

Hi,

Sorry for the VERY LATE reply!

In your router config, is there any mention of ports or anything like that?

Oh ok. So it allows all ports to pass through?

Can you ensure that ports 25 and 110 are open on the router? Maybe add them as exceptions if you can?
