you probably have not entered the correct isp address in the send section - it is normally something like smtp.yourisp.com

i stil have the same problem, i have trie to use mail.mywebsite.com, but it has failed, not i have switched to the proposed smpt.mywebsite.com and that has failed too!

funny thing is that, i can receive e-mails but i can not be able to send mails. i still dont know what may be the problem!

can anyone help me out with ideas to sort this out?

thanks though for the former idea, but i'm still stuck!

In setting up the email under properties try ticking the box which says that the server requires authentication?
