Relay.plus.net

I read somewhere if i changed one of my other ISP accounts outgoing mail server as relay.plus.net i could send mail from my old f/serve and ntl accounts,
It worked with lineone/f/serve and ntl
yet it doesn't work for me!
Am I missing something blindingly obvious?
I use OE and i am on BB with a Binatone router/modem
Thanks for any help

Please expand on 'yet it doesn't work for me!'? What happens, what error messages do you get (post it in full). Are you definately connected to PlusNets network when you send?

Relay.plus.net

i can receive mail from my other isp mail servers no problem but cannot send using relay.plus.net. i used this method whenever i used another isp mail account by using smtp.mail.whatever
when i try to send i get the error message;
The Connection to the Server has failed account ***, server:'relay.plus.net'
Protocol:smtp, port:5110 (i use avg) secure (SSL):No,socket error:10060,
Error Number:0x800CCC0E

Thanx

Try deleteing the account in the accounts setings of Outlook express, then create a new one.

This will rule out possible corrupt settings.
