Hello all, I'm forwarding this on behalf of Catherine.
Hi, I'm having problems with sending e-mail and wonder if anyone's got any ideas what's going wrong. I have a freeserve e-mail address and a yahoo one. Up until yesterday everything was fine with sending/receiving from both, but now I can't send e-mail from the yahoo account, though I can receive it. This is the error message I get when I try to send from my yahoo account (this is using Outlook Express 6): An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'Message for access-uk', Account: 'yahoo', Server: 'smtp.wanadoo.co.uk', protocol: smtp, server response: '550 error: message content rejected <0c1c9d2ee4ef2c0e63e3022e582dc9a2>', port: 25, secure (ssl): no, server error: 550, error number: 0x800CCC69 From looking on the net I thought the problem could be that the wanadoo server won't let me send yahoo e-mail through it. So I looked on the yahoo website to check that I had the right settings. Yahoo say you should use smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk but that some ISPs won't allow you to send yahoo mail while you are connected to the net through them (something like that anyway) - and in that case you should use your ISP's smtp server to send yahoo mail - which must have been why I had my yahoo account set to use wanadoo's smtp server - I'd had it like this for a couple of years with no problems. So then I thought now that wanadoo is orange maybe the settings have changed. I did actually originally have my yahoo account set to use smtp.freeserve.com. Looking in my wanadoo account settings I saw the server is smtp.wanadoo.co.uk so I tried that, still get the same error; So it doesn't work with smtp.freeserve.com or smtp.wanadoo.co.uk. I've e-mailed wanadoo to ask about this but I'm not sure if/when they'll get back to me plus I have a feeling since I'm asking about a problem to do with sending from a yahoo account they'll probably not care about it. So has anyone got any ideas what could be wrong? Do you think that error does imply I can't send e-mail through that server? Any other ideas? Don't suppose anyone has a freeserve.co.uk and a yahoo.co.uk and wanadoo/freeserve/orange as an ISP do you? If so maybe you could tell me what settings you use...this is driving me up the wall! It was fine until yesterday... Thanks for any suggestions, Catherine ** Skype: darkitude MSN: catherineturner2000@xxxxxxxxxxx
