How do I send an e-mail in Outlook 2003?

I have selected a received e-mail in the inbox in Outlook 2003, clicked on the button "Reply" and entered my reply. Then I click the button "Send" but nothing happens, no window or any confirmation message appears. I cc:ed a copy to my own webmail but nothing had reached the inbox.

It works perfectly fine to download from the inbox for this webmail account so the connection settings are OK (when testing settings I get a green check mark for all tests, also sending message).

This seems to be an SMTP related error, are you sure you have a correct smtp url/IP address for your webmail?

Only the replyes to that specific messages are not working?... If you create a new message is working?... because if bot answers to above questions are YES - then you may have a problem with your PST file and you should check it for errors with SCANPST.EXE.

When you click on Send does the message window close? >> If not - open outlook in safe mode( outlook.exe /safe) and try again.
Do you have anything perhaps in your Outbox folder? >> clean it up.
Make sure there are no add-ins on the outlook that could cause you this problem.

Does the message sit in the Outbox awaiting sending?  Does it put the message in the Sent Items folder?

Try enabling "Request a delivery receipt for this message" and "Request a read reciept for this message" in a new email before you send it (In the Message Options screen).  You should get an automated response from the servers as the messages travels along its path to the destination.
