Any ideas?

Welcome to the wonderful world of BT SMTP servers.

I was pulling my hair out with the same problem you had - support deny
all knowledge of any problems, it must be my setup, they said.

Then, all of a sudden, it started working again this morning.

My guess is that it's them Graham, not you.

You guess wrong. BTBB dont have any SMTP servers. and as long as your
lets you send via theirs from a connection that isnt theirown then you
or you can run your SMTP server as I do but AOL wont accept mail from a
dynamic IP address, AOL is the only ISP I have found this problem with.
Its all to easy to blaim BT, Yes they do make mistakes but so do all the
others. BT do suffer from a lot of poorly informed users who blaim the
person they can. But before blaiming the first person you should check
possibles first. IE ISP, Your setting etc.


You can quite happily use mail.btinternet.com or mail.btopenworld.com from
BTB. It's not advertised, and it's not supported, but it does work. (I
use their news server too.)
