Hey, I'm working on someone elses computer and I am having trouble sending mail through outlook while connected via dial-up with AOL. I've read quite a bit about certain ISPs blocking SMTP port 25 so you are forced to use their email while logged in and I *think* this is the case with AOL. I've telneted to the mail server @ port 25 from a LAN connected computer and got in. The AOL computer gets a "Connection Refused" message. I know the email settings are correct, since when the computer is connected via LAN it picks up and sends email no problem. Does anyone know of a way to fix this? I've tried sending mail on port 1025 but I don't think our mail server allows that - although I could probably have that port added. They have had this problem in the past and had it fixed and working but now everything has been reinstalled. Thanks.
