    I have recently installed a Linksys wireless-G broadband router onto my
    cable-modem. My Home PC is the main computer in the household. I only use
    (1) laptop to access the wireless network within my home. My laptop computer
    has no problems accessing the wireless signal OR accessing the signal if I
    plug into one of the additional (4) available ports. My laptop has no
    problems receiving e-mail messages OR accessing the internet. HOWEVER, I am
    having difficulties attempting to SEND e-mail.
    I am a frequent business traveler and I DO NOT have these problems at hotels
    offering wireless hi-speed internet. I have contacted Linksys tech-support
    and they say that it is due to settings WITHIN Microsoft Outlook 2003.
    A little background on attempting to SEND e-mail ... I am utilizing
    Microsoft Outlook 2003 to access a web-based e-mail client (Merak Mail
    Server). I do not know if that has any bearing?
    Both my Home PC and laptop are running Windows XP.
    If anyone could possibly offer any assistance / direction for these issues I
    am having, I would greatly appreciate.
    BEST REGARDS

  2. I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the port address for the
    server setting. I was advised by my email provider to change it from 25
    to 110. That fixed MY problem. It may not fix yours but if all else
    fails give it a try.

    JIM,

    I tried your reccomendations and came up with the following ...

    Pinging "mail.server.com" with 32 bytes of data:

    Reply from "mail.server.com": bytes=32 time=31ms TTL=114
    Reply from "mail.server.com": bytes=32 time=30ms TTL=114
    Reply from "mail.server.com": bytes=32 time=28ms TTL=114
    Reply from "mail.server.com": bytes=32 time=30ms TTL=114

    Ping statistics for "mail.server.com":
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 28ms, Maximum = 31 ms, Average = 29ms

    When I attempted to telnet into port 25 of the mail.server.com, I received
    the following message...

    Connecting To "mail.server.com"...Could not open connection to the host, on
    port 25: Connect failed

    Any other additional suggestions?
    Thank you in advance and CYA online
