Outlook Express and MS Proxy Server

By gadoherty ·
I having a problem getting Outlook Express to use MS proxy. Internet access works fine but I keep getting a time out when Outlook Express trys to contact the mail server. I have a small lan with MS Proxy on a server which dials out to the ISP.

Have you installed the Winsock Proxy Client on the PC, and enabled POP3/SMTP in the winsock properties on the proxy server?
That should then work.

If you have specified the mail server by name rather than by IP number, if DNS is not properly set up, you will either hang forever or time out. If you specified multiple DNS servers and the first one is not working, you will wait for the first one to time out before the second one delivers the IP address.

Greetings,

Make sure you're using Outlook Express version 5.0 and also using only TCP/IP.
