THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
I have talked to my ISP, I have talked to Geek Squad, I have posted several
queries on this board and others...
but YOU are the first one to give me the real solution!
I, too, have not been able to send emails.
I can receive them, but ever since my computer performed a critical update
(SP1) 3 days ago, I have not been able to send.
The messages just get stuck in my outbox!
I can delete them, so my problem is not identical to Jude's, but your
solution worked! I went to the tutorial and turned off email scanning from
my anti-virus program.
When I opened Windows Mail (Vista), it immediately sent all the messages I
have been trying to send for the past 3 days.
That patch link that everyone keeps giving out to others experiencing this
IT DOESN'T WORK.
Especially if your computer is fairly new or you have updated recently.
That patch is a year old and when I tried to download it, it said I didn't
So, I hope others who are experiencing this problem read this thread.
Thanks again & Jude, I hope it helps you as much as it did me!
