I THOUGHT I had everything setup correctly. It downloads my mail, but I can't reply it won't send. When I take my laptop out, and connect to wifi at a restaurant, or coffee shop it sends just fine, which leads me to believe it's something setup wrong on my router. However I have a gmail account setup with outlook that sends and receives just fine. They're both using the POP access protocol.
I can provide more specifics if it will help.
What provider are you having issues with?
My yahoo/sbcglobal account recently had the same issues, and it turned out i had to open some new port on the router.
