Windows 7: Can' send email

Can' send email

I have noticed that in Outlook, whwn I am on some wireless networks away from my home network, I can receive my email on outlook, but I can not reply nor send email through outlook. Everything else works fine on these other networks, but I have to go to my server websites that I am pulling my email from to be able to send or reply to them. Any idea what I have wrong?

Windows 7 HP 32 bit and OUtlook 2007.
Thanks,
Bill

Bill the sendmail server settings are different. At home you may send mail to server.myisp.com, where as in a coffee house they may have a different ISP.

Best bet, use web mail..

Not had any issues myself here - one thing it could be is that the coffee-house router does not have the correct ports open for SMTP - 25 for unencrypted

You can check using the information on this link ....

How to check whether SMTP port 25 is blocked?

The info is valid although the link is specific to a particular ISP

The outside networks' ISP may be blocking the default outgoing (smtp) port. E.g., my ISP does it (to prevent spamming or something) so while I can receive mail in Outlook, I cant send any using the default ports. What I have done is to configure Gmail smtp in Account settings (keeping incoming pop3 default), using my Gmail account username and password and the Gmail port (465/587). All my outgoing mail now goes through Gmail, no fuss.
