    specifically - on my wife's computer using WLM, but it does show on
    her machine in Outlook Express, and a test email shows on both my
    Outlook and my WLM.

    I looked in her blocked senders and it's empty.

    Any ideas?

    Are you asking for proof that the e-mail got sent (i.e., received by
    your SMTP server and then it sent it out from there)? Or are you asking
    why an item is stuck in the Outbox folder? Or are you asking why a
    successfully sent e-mail has no local copy in the Sent Items folder?

    "email doesn't show" doesn't tell us what you mean to say and provides
    no details.
    Nothing to do with her *sending* out e-mails. That is a blacklist of
    senders identified in *received* e-mails.

    If I send my wife an email, she gets it on her old XP machine with
    Outlook Express, but does not get it on her new machine with WLM.
    Sorry for the confusion.

    As I said, I checked her blocked senders list and it is empty.

    If I send a test email to myself, I do receive it in WLM and Outlook
    on the same machine which shows that it's not blocked at the server.

    Are you talking of the same identical email? If so are you using POP
    email? Does she go first to the XP machine to read it? or does it not
    appear when she goes first to the new machine. How often do the machines
    check for new email? Does she receive any email on the new machine on
    the same email account that you are sending to?

    Hi, Alpac.

    As Magnus said:
    And, what is the setting on each machine for retention on the mail server?

    In the settings for EACH mail server, on the Advanced tab, there is a
    "Delivery" section. The first check box is to "Leave a copy of messages on
    server"; the second says "Remove from server after __ days". The number of
    days is 30, I believe, by default, but you can change it.

    Make sure that Machine A does not delete the message FROM THE SERVER before
    Machine B has a chance to download it.

    Hi RC

    what you wrote below rang a bell!!

    I changed the setting to leave the message on the server and it works
    great now.

    My thanks to you and all who were kind enough to respond.
