I just joined the group, so forgive me if what I'm about to ask has been asked a zillion times already.

I have a problem e-mailing from Mozilla. When I try to send an e-mail, or even reply to an incoming e-mail I get an error message saying " relaying messages to AOL (or whoever) is not permitted."

What do I need to change to overcome this problem?

The only way I can send e-mails to go back to my ntl home page and use their webmail

Regards and thanks.
Peter Cole.

Seems like a problem with your provider not allowing you to send e-mail through their SMTP-server. I think you should contact your provider or the firm that runds your SMTP server (which should be one and the same in most cases).

Which SMTP server do you use to send mail. It appears that your "from" Address and the server domain don't match.

One question: Do you send email to someone at AOL, or did you by any chance use Netscape 7 to get your AOL email and the settings are still there.
