Go into Tools > Accounts and open the properties for your email account, go
to the Servers tab and click on the Settings button, make sure the "Use same
settings as my incoming mail server" is selected.

  Subject: [exchangelist] POP before SMTP

  I am receiving emails through POP3 account without any problems.
  When I am trying to send email to the same SMTP server as POP3 server, I
  receive a window which asks me the password and domain name.
  I am connecting to the mail account on a Exchange Server 2000 from my
  company by using a ISP local number and a dial-up connection.
  If I input the password again, the email is sent.
  How can I disable this window to not appear every time when I am trying to
  send emails?
  When I press send and receive button I think Outlook Express 6 is trying
  send and after that to receive. That's why is trying to authenticate me
  first for sending.
  I completed the steps for Incoming Mail Server to login with my account
  my password (with remember password) and for Outgoing Mail Server to login
  also with my account and my password (with remember password). I checked
  option My Outgoing Mail Server require Authentication.

  Why do I still receive that window for password and domain name?

  Thank you,


  Is this the answer to my question?

  With the POP before SMTP method, the user must first identify
  himself/herself as a rightful user by first receiving incoming E-mail with
  mail software. Then, only the rightful user will obtain authentication to
  send E-mail.

  Do I have to disable on Send page , Send messages immediately?

  Thank you.
