Windows 7: Problem with sending email only on desktop

Problem with sending email only on desktop

My son has a laptop and desktop, both using WLM. All settings are identical with ISP on both systems. He can send emails on the laptop with no problem, but when he tries to send emails from the desktop, the email doesn't send until he exits the email screen. Then he gets a window that says "You have unsent email in your OUTBOX, do you want to send now?" I don't see this as an error message, but rather it seems its saying that his email is sitting in an outbox somewhere and not being sent UNTIL he exits the email program. He does not have this problem on the laptop, only the desktop. Any suggestions on this issue? The desktop was purchased about a year ago and only set up within the last 3 months or so. It's not a big issue since he can send email via the laptop, but I can't figure out why he gets this message only on the desktop.

It would have to be a Windows firewall.... If this is the problem, how do I fix it? Thanks for your help

I don't think its firewall issue since the emails are getting sent after he closes the email program.


What program are you using?

There could be a setting in windows live mail, but my quick research said to remove and readd the account.
