ok, here is the deal.

I have tbird, as well as OE, since I have founbd that tbird doesn't allow my emails to be delivered from their respective server, i thought I would convert back to OE. I can recieve my emails fine in it, but I can't send any from it. I keep getting this error.

An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'generating error report.', Account: 'business email', Server: 'mail.iabusinessprojects.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0B


I did read up on this, and the error has something about maybe being logged in on another machine, which it's not and no one has the pword or account loggin info except me. I don't even save the Pword on the computer for obvious reasons. Or another possibility is the account being "poplocked". If that is the case is that something I have to get handled from my webhost or is it something I can do from Cpanel?? I haven't tried this on my primary Email account yet, just my business ones.

I have done the following, uninstall and reinstall OE, tried making a new account on OE, checked firewall settings. The only reference I can find at MS is dealing with Oultook 2002, which doesn't work on OE.

If I can get this resolved, without reformatting, I would extremely happy. Especially since, as I stated before, tbird doesn't give the full functionality that I need.

Can you get OE to send other server accounts

Yahoo UK let you have pop access with OE free, I thinks it's subscription in the States

http://edit.europe.y...=&promo=&.last=

If it asks for a postcode, they are two letters and one number, and then one number and two letters

AB1 2CD

On the Yahoo page you then click options, allow pop access then set OE to use pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk and smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk

This does need server requires authentication

ok, I used my primary email address supplied by my ISP. it had no problems sending from that. and I was able to receive the email via OE on the business account I sent it to.

So it appears the problem lays somewhere in my company websites email system. I will do some more research into this and make sure I didn't make an error when making the accounts.
