    Does your connection to that server go through some other internet
    equipment before it gets to If so, such connections to port
    are often blocked to cause trouble for spammers. In this case, you have two
    choices: 1. Ask if their outgoing email server listens to
    port other than port 25 for outgoing mail, and if so, how to switch to the
    other port. 2. Use the outgoing email server of the first internet
    in the connection instead.

    Also, what if any antivirus programs do you have? Some of them cause
    various problems in Windows Mail, although seldom immediately.

  3. That mail host does exist. As a test, try substituting for the
    SMTP server name It sounds like there is a problem
    with DNS lookup on your PC.

    Have you set up using Suddenlink's instructions?

    They don't seem to have written instructions for Windows Mail yet, but
    you should find what you need in the Outlook Express instructions.

    Are you using a connection to that server that crosses from one
    internet provider's equipment to another's along the way? If so, such
    connections to port 25 are often blocked to cause trouble for spammers.
