Hi Kimghartwick,

The error message implies that you need to enable send authentication. To do this, on your Outlook Express window, Go to Tools, scroll down to Accounts, select your account, click Properties then choose Servers. On that po-up window, enable the "My server requires authentication" option.

After doing this, reset the outlook express to apply the settings.  You could also try creating a new account and profile to test if you will still encounter the problem.

Please make sure that you are using the appropriate server address setting specifically the incoming and outgoing e‑mail servers used by your e‑mail provider because many people get confused when filling the correct information about e‑mail servers.


Best regards,
