Unable to send email with MS Outlook 2003 with Win XP Pro

By mihouser ·
One of my users is on a PC with Win XP SP3 and MS Outlook 2003 (as the email editor)

I can receive email without any problems, but cannot send.

I'm not getting any error being reported and the application just does nothing. I have done the following using regedit: Regsvr32.exe %Windir%\System32\Ole32.dll

I am not sure what it wrong.

My users are using a POP3 server for sending and receiving email

So have you looked in Outlooks

Settings and made sure that the Outgoing Mail Server is correct?

If that is wrong and seems to be working you'll not get any Error Messages.

All is correct. The strange thing is that its worked before and now it does not.

When did this start?

by OH Smeg In reply to Yes

Just after this months Windows Updates where Installed?

If so look at the Outgoing Ports and the entire connection. Something has been altered/closed by the Update to improve security. You may need to reset things in the Firewall or whatever else you have running.

Thanks All

Figured it out.

Turned out to be the GPGforwin "Add On" in Outlook 2003

Add-in Manager

Navigate to ?Tools->Options->Other->Advanced Options->Add-ins Manager?? and uncheck the Add-ins you do not need.

{sigh} so little info

Is the POP server internal or external?
Are you addressing it with Ip or DNS?
Have you checked the firewall settings?
Does the POP server need a log in and did you make sure that both u/n and pw are correct?
What port does your outbound server use and is it set right?
Are the authentication settings set correctly?
