Windows 7: Outlook 2010 won't send - straight to outlook

Outlook 2010 won't send - straight to outlook

When I'm at work outlook 2010 will send e-mails without any problems.
When I go home after work and try to send an e-mail, they go straight to the outbox folder. They won't send until I'm back at work the following day. I don't understand.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Insufficient information -

Is this a laptop that you use at the office and then also use at home?

When you're at home and have an email you want sent in the Outbox, click on the "Send/Receive all Folders".

See if that sends it out.

Yes it's a laptop. I'm not sure what to do.

I've tried clicking on the send/receive folder and it still goes to the outbox folder.

thanks for any help.

When you're at home, are you still connected to your domain at work?

I'm just wondering whether setting up a different profile for home use is a possible solution.

How to create and configure an email profile in Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, and Outlook 2003

Could be a firewall issue - you may need to VPN in to use the existing profile OR follow seavixen32's advise and establish a new profile to use outside of the office.

At work we just connect to the Wireless and it's a simple workgroup. We don't use VPN. it's actually for a school principal. Not sure how she connects at home. She mentioned that her Ipad will send and receive at both home and school. But I was thinking it has to do will smtp settings.

Someone mentioned to change the smtp settings to smtpa and change the port to 587... I haven't got to do this yet, but will in the next few hours and will update the post to see if that'll work.

Any other suggestions? Thanks for the help

You're welcome.

I don't have any other ideas off the cuff - best to wait until you've reconfigured your Outlook account settings.

I was having a similar issue. At home, using wireless, any emails I sent would sit in my outbox regardless of anything I did. I would then take my laptop into my office, plug into the LAN and and any emails in my outbox would be sent.

This evening while at home again, I went into manage my account >more settings >advanced and changed the Outgoing SMTP from 25 to 587. That now allows me to send emails from my home wireless.
