E-mail issues...?

I configured Outlook 2002 (XP) as to how it says to in the Wiki, but it still does not work. I sent many a e-mail to choysal@gmail.com, my Google e-mail address, but no avail. Sometimes I get a response back, saying the server timed out, but that is it, if I get a response.

How can I resolve this issue?

Thank you.

Not to question you about folowing the wiki instructions, butdid you try the alternate smtp port (587)? Many isp’s block port 25, which would result in your mail not going out/connecting to the server. That’s the first thing I would check.

Can you receive mail via your outlook setup? If so, that is even a stronger indication that you need to modify your outgoing port.
