Question about Computers & Internet
You will need to make sure that your SMTP settings are correct. If you're using a private email server or an ISP mail server, you will need the correct settings.
Also, in some cases the SMTP server will require user authentication.
I'm not 100% where to find this in Outlook Express, but in Outlook 2007 you go to Tools > Account Settings > Select your account > Click Change... and from there you should be able to see a few settings.
Look for a checkbox that says:
My outgoing (SMTP) server requires user authentication,
Click that checkbox if it's not already selected. Chose option #2:
Log on using:
Enter your username and password in the appropriate fields. Save your settings and then try.
Let me know if this helps at all.
Given the fact that you said you can receive messages but cannot send, I know 100% that it's an SMTP issue which is fixable.
