Hi

I'm trying to set up outlook express to send e-mail using my own mail server. I am pretty sure I have set the account up correctly and have also tried setting the outgoing port to 26 but I keep getting the error message

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '[email protected]', Server: 'mail.mcsit.org.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 26, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Any ideas anyone?

What do you mean your own mail server? If you have a isp you must use
there mail server. for example, pop.earthlink.net smtp.earthlink.net.

If you can receive email without a problem then manic is correct regarding 'relaying'. The only thing you can do to overcome this is by changing the smtp server in Outlook Express to that of your ISPs.
