You are, in effect, an extension of your neighbour's isp connection. You may be in a different house but, as far as your connection is concerned, you are connected to his isp. You will not be able to connect to a different one as you have no account with them.
Does your neighbour use Outlook Express?

So as long as you are connected to the Internet through your neighbour's connection, I would think that you just need to change your outlook express mail server settings to reflect his ISP's SMTP server. Moreover, my ISP allows me to have several e-mail addresses with my Internet account. If this is the case with his ISP, he could request an extra email for you.
BTW. I would rather be hated for who I am ~THAN~ loved for who I'm not.

"The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was firstname.lastname@example.org'. Subject '', Account: 'mail.__my old ISP___.net', Server: 'mail.___.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '504 <Kelli>: Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified hostname', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 504, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
Now obviously I removed my ISP company name and the persons e-mail I was sending to just for the sake of privacy

SMTP is Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. It's the protocol that is used to deliver a message from your computer to a user's ISP. For instance, if you want to send a message to a friend, you basically send it to your ISP's SMTP server. The SMTP server will take care of delivering it to your friend's ISP. And his ISP will take care of sending it to him (probably putting it on the POP server and waiting for him to check his mail).
In Outlook Express, click on Tools, the Accounts, then create a new mail account, then provide the POP and SMTP server addresses or their DNS names.
I would think that your neighbour's ISP would have a tech support line that could help you with this. Hopefully they can even provide you with an email of your own. If not, you may as well use a HOTMAIL account as was prevoiously suggested.

I had a similar problem with my dialup. I resolved it by changing my email server setup from mail.dodo.com.au to smtp.dodo.com.au
Dont know if this will help
