Hi, I have a similar problem here, which I've never cracked.  So anyone who can 
say why one
might not be able to send mail on an account while receiving it via Plusnet - 
or maybe any
other provider - then I also would like to know the answer.

Negotiating the complexities of Plusnet's helpsystem can be daunting.  I don't 
much want to
spend extra money on tech support either, if I can avoid it.

I am having a problem with sending emails from my desk top using plusnet.
when I send from the laptop it sends fine but when I send from the desk top
I get the following message.
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'plus net', Server:
'relay.plus.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error:
10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I have been having this problem for about a week and at first thought it was
plusnet as their server crashed over the new year holiday. however, as after
a couple of days I could receive emails again I began to think the problem
might be at my end, I checked the laptop and found that indeed that was the

can any one suggest what may be wrong? I checked the account properties and
internet options in the tools menu and the laptop and desk top settings
matched. so I can receive but not send messages from my desktop.
