    I don't believe so.
    Are you having problems sending through someone like Yahoo mail who require receive before send?

    Yes, actually PowerNetGlobal requires a receive first to increase the security of the system. As I do most of my work offline, this is annoying. I have to delete the message from the outbox, receive and then send. Was hoping for another way out. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for your time.

    Covered in an earlier Outlook post <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=out&Number=61221&page=&view =&sb=&o=&vc=1>here</A>.

    I don't believe there is an easy answer - my trick for setting up dual accounts does not always work, I think.
    I have heard that some ISP's / mail services that require a receive first, keep access open for 15 mins (?) after getting a receive request, which is why it will work on the second attempt.

    Do you need to delete the mail in your Outbox? Will it not go on the second attempt, or is causing a 'hang'?

    Yes, it causes a "hang". It says the sender won't relay the message and it prevents any sending. I wish I could say this was a "free" internet connection as many of the respondees have mentioned. I actually pay for this service.

    Thanks, I will try the dual arrangement as you suggested and then move on.

    Best,
