Messages can be received in Outlook Express, but when trying to send only get error message, I've been asked by someone who knows even less than me, if the best option was to reinstall the account, as the only user what would be the best way for her to do this?

have you just set up the computer, or is it a new problem ?

If new problem, go to Tools-Accounts and check the address is correct

i.e Correct email address
Correct Pasword
Is it pop3 or something else
Have you put stmp instead of smtp (easy mistake-hard to spot)

Tools -accounts- mail -properties -server

check that you have entered the smtp setting correctly for your ISP mail account.

i.e. smtp.freeserve.co.uk

For send the SMTP ISP as got to be right in the account settings

They really should match, As not all ISP's will send for another account

They really should match, As not all ISP's will send for another account. Or if you use annother E-Mail address the ISP should be the ISP that you are connected to
