Re: Can´t set outgoing mail for my company´s email from...

Hey mylene,

Could I get some more specifics?

Are you just opening a web browser, and actually typing in,, and going to your mail?

Or, are you using a mail client, like, Outlook Express, or Thunderbird, and using yahoo as a server?

OUTLOOK ERROR 550 5.7.1 Your email contained wrongly placed script tags. Please correct this (try setting your mail program to use plain text) and resend your message. PLZ REPLAY FAST

If you are receiving an error when sending email using Outlook:

"The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. Server Response: '550 not local host, not a gateway', Port: 25, Secure (SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79"

Open your Outlook settings (Tools > Accounts)
Go to View/Change email account for the email account you are having problems with.
Check that the SMTP Server is set to
Go into the "More settings", "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure that the option "My server requires authentication" for the Outgoing server is checked ON.

Save and close all windows.

Try again.

If the problem continues then the problem is that your Internet Service Provider is blocking the mail server. ISPs do this to prevent spam on their network. When this happens you will need to use the mail server that they provide you instead of your own. The mail server is generally, however, it could be different so please contact your ISP to get the details.

If you do not want to use your ISPs server for SMTP, and the ISP is blocking port 25, you can switch the port to 587 for your outgoing mail and use mail.yourdomain,com for the SMTP server name.

My computer refuses to change a message in Outbox to Send, leaving me with a queue ofunsent messages. I can receive incoming clls, but not send any out returner@ntl

Make sure your SMTP (outgoing) server is set properly.
Are you on your own connection - or using a retail WiFi one?

Normally most WiFi servers reject outgoing mail.
You can GET mail - just not send any.
SMTP is blocked.
Pop3 (incoming) is allowed.

To check that the SMTP is set properly -

Open O/E, and navigate to the following screen....

Tools > Accounts > (Highlight the eMail account you are trying to send from).

Then click Properties

Click SERVERS tab.

It should say...
Outgoing Mail (SMTP): __________________________

In the blank it should say something like:
(check with your service provider for the correct SMTP setting)

Thank You!! :D

E mail error550 I am not receiving or sending

You need to check your outgoing mail server name and the authentication associated with the account you are using. In other words, your email client (like Outlook or Thunderbird) has an outgoing mail server name and an account name and password setting. Try this:
Open your Outlook (or other mailer) settings (Tools > Accounts)
Go to View/Change email account for the email account you are having problems with.
Check that the SMTP Server is set to
Go into the "More settings", "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure that the option "My server requires authentication" for the Outgoing server is checked ON. Save and close all windows. Try again.

It will be slightly different for other mail programs, but you should see the same type of information, but maybe in other tabs/windows.

I have just set up Outlook 2007 to run via my mail server and although I seem to receive emails into outlook I do not seem to be able to send from outlook

Go to Tools->account settings and check they are all correct. Double click on your account (in account settings), then click on 'more Settings', On the outgoing server tab it check whether 'My outgoing server requires authentication' is ticked (some servers need this ticked others don't so try changing it. Also on the Advanced Tab, check the SMTP port, it's usually 25 but depending on your mail server may be something else.

Using thunderbird mail program on lap top. can receive e-mail, but can not send e-mail on any public wi-fi connection. error message says can not connect to mail server on port 25.

most isp blocks port 25 for sending out mail that's the reason you cant send out mail, ask you wifi(ISP) smtp settings and you need to set it on your smtp server so you can send out mail using thier smtp as outgoing server.

OR ask you email provider about your webmail address and manually send out mail using the web interface of your email hosting.

btw have you try to change you smtp port to 587 sometimes it work.

Outgoing mail problem

Email problems are normally an issue with either you email program configuration (SMTP Server settings) or you firewall settings. Neither of which are something Dell is going to support other than a best effort try.

What company is providing the email account?
Is your internet service with the same company?
What program are you using to access your email? Vista Mail? Outlook? Outlook Express?
Can you send email via the webmail application for that email provider?
