My dads work computer has Windows 98 and uses Outlook Express 6 for emailling (old school i know!)
We are not the most technical people so need your help!
Basically we are able to recieve emails but are not able to send them and keep getting the following error message in outlook:
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'email@example.com'. Subject 'Testing Email', Account: 'pop3.ihug.co.nz', Server: '127.0.0.1', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 relaying mail to hotmail.com is not allowed', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
That was a message i tried to send to my personal email to test if they were going through but that error message keeps on occuring. My hotmail account is working fine as i am able to send and recieve emails through there no problems.
The problem has only recently occured after we installed Avast Antivirus software but i dont think that could cause this problem could it?
Does anyone know how we can fix the problem?
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance
