Receive email but can't send

having used PT now on a couple of different machines (to successfully recieve email), one on a network, and one on a similar home wireless set up to the one i have at home. I find i can only send and receive on my own machine. Whenever i try to send i get a very longwinded message about servers, if anyone has any suggestions i would be most greatful
Cheers

Network Settings

set by the administrator might be interfering or the ports might be blocked.

try this programme

I don't know if this programme could help...

Free SMTP Server

http://www.softstack.com/freesmtp.html

I tried from my hard drive but I do not try from my USB device yet, I had the same problem in a coffee shop (I coul receive but couldn't sent).

I would be very cool to have a "portable version" of this program or maybe a plugin.

As a quick fix, I used the settings of the Gmail servers (for POP3) mail and it sems to work, the minor caveat is that the mail looks that has been sent from your gmail account and not from your original mail account you setup in the Portable Thunderbird.

Tell me if the programme help you,

Won't work

This won't work from most connections you'll use. Since it's actually an outgoing SMTP server, it needs port 25 to connect, which is usually blocked. Even if it weren't, you're sending directly from an ip that's dynamic, which many mail servers consider spam and block.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Your ISP

Your ISP has their security configured to only allow you to send mail when you're dialed into or directly connected (via DSL or Cable) to their network. You can't use their mail server from outside apparently.

I use Google Mail for my SMTP

I use Google Mail for my SMTP (in Portable TB), and put my ISP's address in the "Reply To" setting. To e-mail somebody I don't want seeing my Google Mail address, I use my ISP's webmail site to do it (and BCC it to myself if need be to get a copy in Portable TB next time I use it to sign on).
