Hi, I know what ISP means... I've just discovered that it wasn't, in fact, anything to do with my connection or the programme not functioning properly - there is something about the recipient's email address that Outlook Express doesn't like, and it refuses to send it, even though it's a valid email address (Gmail). I've just given up trying to figure out why OE refuses to send an email to a legitimate email address, since it's not that important and, since it was old work, I hopefully won't ever need to email that person again. Hopefully it'll keep working with all my other email addresses.

Servers have a certain limit on the recipients. You may be exceeding the recipient limit. Try breaking the recipient down in some groups. Besides, change SMTP PORT TO 587 AND ENSURE THAT 'My Server Requires Authentication' is Checked.
