    can receive email but cannot send

    When I try to send an email it seems to send it normally but then no one gets
    it. I have even sent one to myself and do not receive it. It shows up in the
    sent folder. I thought it was a problem with my isp but when I called the man
    said it was a problem with windows mail. I also tried to set it up on
    microsoft outlook but it did the same thing. Can anyone help me?

    It's pretty hard to diagnose this without an error message.

    Have you called your ISP back to let them know the same problem
    is happening with Outlook?

    To narrow the problem down to your ISP, try sending through Gmail.
    Get a free Gmail account: http://gmail.com
    Then enable your Gmail account for POP:
    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/a...n&answer=13273
    Then set the account up in Windows Mail:
    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/a...y?answer=13276
    Those directions are for Outlook Express, but they will work for
    Windows Mail.
