    Communication problem (XP SP3)

    From time to time I get this error message after writing an e-mail and trying to send it:
    "The operation failed due to network or other communication problems. Check your connections and try again."

    I have no idea what is wrong, and my internet connection (cable modem) is still functioning. Nor am I able to intentionally reproduce the error.

    The only way to "fix" it at my knowledge level is to close and then restart Outlook.

    I would be thrilled with some suggestions about how to proceed.

    Thanks!

    A wild guess: but it is possible that you are "colliding" with Outlook polling your mail server to see whether there is any incoming mail for you. If you wait for, say, 30 seconds, are you able to send the email without any problems? HTH
