Welcome to the last month of the year! It's one of my favorites, in part because my birthday is this month.

There have been random reports of problems sending coosnet email. If you are having problems sending mail, please make the following configuration change.

1. Inside of Outlook Express, pull down the Tools Menu and click on Accounts.

2. Click on the Mail Tab at the top of the window.

3. Click ONCE on your email account. It probably has the word (default) trailing it, and then click the properties button on the right.

4. Click the Servers Tab at the top

5. Remove everything on the line asking for the Outgoing Mail (SMTP).

6. On the now empty line type (be certain to use periods, not commas, type it in little letters, only change the Outgoing Mail line!)

7. Click on OK

8. Click on Close
