Hi Guys

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 'meraboy@hotmail.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
Jono

Does it happen only with Hotmail, or any other e-mail you try sending?

To rule out Avast, right-click the Avast icon, select Stop Provider, Internet Mail. Try sending the e-mail again now.

It sounds like an authentication problem then. Check the SMTP cofiguration you have on this Outlook to make sure you are using the correct server. If you are connecting from IHUG then you might not need username/password authentication, so try unchecking this is it's there too.

Always with OE you have to call your Internet service provider for the proper POP outgoing info and they have to  help you set it up over the phone because there may be other items you'll need.

However, you should bag OE and goto www.hushmail.com, they have a very secure email that you can also trust your  online ordering info with.

And what secure email do u recommend  if not hushmail?
