    Win2000 SP2 update

    I have just upgaded Win2000 to Win2000 SP2 and now can't send an email larger that about 2 lines (using Outlook Express). Less than 2 lines send OK. Boy is this wierd, I spent an hour on the phone with my ISP and they haven't a clue. Over to you geniuses. Help!!

    How are you connecting and what is actually happening?
    Do you think it is down to size - i.e. can you send one line and an attachment?

    Doubt if it's size. No real diff between 2 lines straight text (sends OK) and 6 lines (won't send). It's a 56k dial up connection.

    Re: Win2000 SP2 update

    Any error messages?
    What version of OE/IE?
    Can you receive 'larger' messages OK?

    Re: Win2000 SP2 update

    OE version 5.5.
    Error message by OE after time out is 'A timeout occurred while communicating
    with the server Subject 'PKs message', Account 'mail.bigpond.com', Server 'mail.bigpond.com', Protocol SMTP, Port 25, secure (SSL): No error number 0x800CCC19.
    I tried a 1 line email with attachment and it won't send.
    In fact I couldn't post this reply through Woody's Lounge, had to go to another computer and use that.
    Regards,
    Peter

    It's possible there is a temporary problem with bigpond - but anyway:

    Tools | Accounts | Mail | Advanced

    and increase the server timeout to max and see what happens.

    Thanks for all your support. To make the problem go away, I un-installed SP2 and installed IE5.5. Everything now works.
    Oncea again thanks. Regards Peter
