Because of a problem with Outlook Express about a year ago, I downloaded Thunderbird and have used it with no problem until now. A few days ago, it decided it didn't want to send, but it will receive. When I try to send, it asks for my password for the smtp server. If I enter it, it still won't send, just keeps asking.
So, since Outlook Express is out of the question, I installed Outlook 2003 from my Office disc. Settings are right, servers are correct, password is correct........ Outlook will send, but won't receive. Asks for my mail service password, but get an error that the mail server rejected my login.
Here's the really odd thing to me..... if I go to my desktop computer, startup Outlook Express on it, OE sends and receives with no problem either way.
What is going on with this laptop? If I could get Outlook to receive, I would uninstall Thunderbird entirely after cleaning out some saved files in it. As I've said, my server names are correct in both, password is correct...... I'm baffled. Any ideas?
late edit: Should have mentioned, my internet connection is dsl. The desktop is hardwired and the laptop with the problem is wireless.
