Question about Actiontec GT704WG Wireless Router (gs583ad3-01)

Sending wireless messages

If I send a lengthy email message (more than a few words)on Vista's "windows mail" from my laptop, the message appears to be sent and resides in the "sent" folder. However, a few minutes later I get a message from Symantec that says "Your email message (message identified) was unable to be sent because the connection to your mail server was interupted. Please open your email client and re-send the message from the sent folder." The message cannot be re-sent. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Norton A/V, still no good. This does not occur at any other wireless hotspot. A short message goes out no problem and my hardwired computer uses the same DSL no problem. It is only the wireless transmission thru the GT704WG router.

Re: sending wireless messages

If Norton is intervening, it's most likely to be the anti-spam package that's doing it - make sure you don't have it installed, and if you do, try disabling it, if that doesn't work, try uninstalling it. That should do the job.

Can it send messages or emails when someone logs in?

Anyone who connects to your wifi connection can send emails a and such, but only from their own accounts unless they know how to hack into your accounts (doubtful).

Hopefully I've answered your question. The wording and saying it instead of whatever device you're referring to is confusing.

Having problem with getting hotmail passing my name & password

Hi, Resetting password in Hotmail is a little tricky. Here are the steps that you can do:
  • Go to the Windows Live Hotmail Reset password page
  • Type the Email address that you want to reset
  • Carefully type the captcha characters on the box
  • Click next or continue
  • Answer the account information and answer the secret question.
  • Click continue.
  • (IT would be advisable to change your password periodically to avoid issues with the password.)
  • If Hotmail still log you into your account automatically and you want to change your (forgotten) password, click Send yourself a password reset e-mail message. and click Send Message.
  • If you have provided an alternate email (try creating a temporary alternate email address to retrieve the email to reset your password) for your Windows Live Hotmail account, you can also send the password reset email to that address. Choose Send yourself a password reset e-mail message. and click Send
  • IT will ask some information about your location (in case your out of the country) and update the secret question and secret answer. and continue.
  • now you should be able to enter a new password, confirm the new password and continue then done.
Some of the options vary in location. Hope this tips will help you log in again. Cheers!!

E-mail comes in all right, but I get the error message when I try to send messages out. . . says server won't accept my address

Some ISPs will block your ability to send mail via SMTP client on your machine. If the email server is different from the one offered by your ISP.

the typical port for the SMTP service is TCP port 25. To allow your outgoing email to route past your ISP, change this to TCP port 587.

On Linux and Mac OS/X, this is found in file /etc/services
On Windows XP, try 'windows\system32\drivers\etc\services'

Locate a line such as
smtp 25/tcp mail

and change it to
smtp 587/tcp mail # port for outgoing mail

Can i use 3com to sent message to my yahoo mail

No, the router is a device that routes data within a network. It is not designed a email client.
Your email client that is ( yahoo, gmail etc. ) if for sending and receiving emails. Your pc is designed with the Outlook and Outlook express and or Windows live to do this.

Remote Assistance Firewall Issues

Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.

If this is what you're already using, go to their help page to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps.

Can receive emails but cannot send emails

Send problems. There are several common causes of problems with sending email:

  • Mail queued. If you appear to be able to send email but it never arrives, it may be in a queue. Some applications put email in a queue when you send it, and the user has to manually send all queued mail to actually transmit it. Check your File and Edit menus for any queues, and also check the status of the email in the Out mailbox to see if it was actually sent -- if not, send it again.

  • Send on check. This is a common problem -- many email servers are configured to use the password authentication involved with checking mail to allow the sending of mail, and therefore require clients to check for mail at the same time or just before sending mail. If you get an intermittent error message and can send at some times and not others, make sure the option "send on check" is enabled in your email settings. As a temporary fix, you can often solve the problem by manually checking for mail shortly (a few seconds or minutes) before sending mail. This problem can also produce the message "relaying not allowed" described below, for much the same reason.

  • Relaying not allowed. Many Internet access providers require clients within their network to use their own servers for sending mail, as a policy intended to cut down on email spammers sending spam through other provider's servers. If you have more than one email address and can download mail without problems from a POP account with a different domain name than is used by your Internet access provider, but get the error "Relaying not allowed" when you try to send, then you probably need to set the outgoing SMTP server address to the mail server of your Internet service provider, instead of your email provider. Search your Internet network provider's home page or call technical assistance to obtain the address of their SMTP server, and enter it in your email client settings (first copy and save your existing server setting in case you need to set it back). This error message can also be produced by the "send on check" issue described in the bullet above.

  • Server down. If you can do a successful connection check, and the above suggestions don't help, and a recipient continues to say that email sent from you does not arrive, and you are certain their address is spelled correctly, then one of the email servers between you and your destination is likely down. Blocked email is typically cached and sent when the missing server comes back up, usually within a few hours or days. If the problem persists and you can successfully send to other email addresses, then the email provider of your recipient is likely having a problem -- you should contact them by phone and ask them if they are getting email from anyone else, request they send an email to you, and if necessary suggest they do a connection check from their end to help diagnose the problem.

Sending email messages

this doesnt make sense as you wouldn't be able to send or receive. If you ave an antivirus programme check it's not scanning your message then putting it in the outbox. If you have changed your service provider recently but kept your old e mail address then the smtp settings are incorrect in your email send settings and may also require server authentication, although your pop3 receiving account may not need to change.
