I'm having problems sending emails with outlook express from my laptop. I was working fine till a couple days ago. I can receive emails and I can send a email to myself and receive it on my laptop but when I send and email to myself, I cannot receive it on my main computer. People that I have email from the laptop are not receiving anything. I can send from the main computer and they are being received. I don't know what to check. I haven't changed any settings. I'm using XP with service pack two on both computers. The networks seems to be working fine. Any suggestions???

Did as suggested and no, it does not need authentication. Both computer have the same setting only changed "Send receive message at start up". Don't know why but it seems to work now. Will know better after work tonight
