if they put reagan on the dime, i will save every dime i get and sent the proceeds to the DNC. if we all do that, we will never get another reagan.

calling all geeks

we just got cable internet. ever since, i have been unable to send emails through eudora. having XP, i didn't need to install the cable provider's software, and none of my eudora settings have changed. now i get timeout messages from eudora when it tries to send, but it recieves just fine. same server, same protocol, same user, same password. any ideas?

calling all geeks part two

since so many people responded to the previous email, i'll expand here.

1 - i already had high speed service, so this is not an issue of changing from dialup.

2 - cox told me i had to change the SMTP server, probably for the reasons someone mentioned, spammers etc.

3 - that still didn't work, instead of a connection timeout message, i now get a connection refused message for both outgoing and incoming mail. in other words, i can't receive it either now.

4 - i tried changing the SMTP server back and i still get the connection refused.

5 - all the error messages, even when i was using their SMTP server, said the client was trying to contact farbelism.com.

6 - cox doesn't support eudora or outlook, only outlook express, so they refuse to help me. ( i don't have or want to have outlook express)
