Re: 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.

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.

Problem sending email using Outlook 2010 on a PC and Linksys wireless network

i doubt the router has anything to do with the problem. most likely culprit is a pop server (handles incomming email). check with your email provider to see if they changed servers...
have you made any changes to your router or firewall? i guess it could be a port that got closed that your email was using
eh, here is a usefull website shows server names and ports used

Unable to send yahoo emails


I am unable to send email to yahoo or the emails to yahoo are being delayed?

This is a new feature of yahoo mail. It is using what is called Grey Listing to fight spam. For more details, you can read:

What happens is that whenever a new message is sent to yahoo, it replies with "try again later" message. e.g. here is a test smtp connection to one of the yahoo's mx:

# telnet 25
Connected to
Escape character is '^]'.
421 Message from (a.b.c.d) temporarily deferred - 4.16.50. Please refer to
Connection closed by foreign host.

Now as you can see, yahoo did not even give us (the ip of a.b.c.d) a chance to start the smtp session. What it will do is wait for us to try again later. Our mail servers (or yours on your vps/dedicated server) will try again later and if yahoo likes the delay long enough, it will let the server communicate further and deliver the email.

To avoid such delays and problems with yahoo mail, you are encouraged NOT TO FORWARD emails to yahoo or any other ISP. Please refer to this KB as well why we are saying that:

Instead, use proper email accounts and use any of your favourite methods to read emails, i.e. webmail, pop3, imap.

Yahoo has been having many problems lately while they are upgrading the classic mail. Many can't access their mail at all. For now you can use this link to send and receive, it's basic, but it works. Works for me.

GOOD LUCK...........

Unable to send emails on my laptop,i have a belkin wireless g router.

If you are connect to the internet and can browse without problem, then the email issue (send or receive for that matter) is more related to your Laptop Security and/or Firewall: isolate the problem by first disabling both security and firewall on your Laptop and then if it works, re-enabling them one by one. If you do not have either security and firewall enabled on your laptop, then the issue is with the securityfirewall on your router and/or modem: again, disable the firewall on your router and/or modem: if your email problem is solved, you should re-enabled your firewall and set an exception for the ports required for your email program.

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 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.
