I'll look into it today (hopefully some others will also).
Also, try checking the firewall to ensure that it's allowing SMPT traffic. Some tweaking/protection programs might be blocking it.
Please check your Account Properties, you should have:
No check in Logon using Secure Password Authentication
No check in My Server Requires Authentication
No check in This Server Requires A Secure Connection (SSL) - actually both of them should be unchecked, but since we're troubleshooting SMTP it's the outgoing one that we're primarily concerned with.
I used this link for it, it's amazingly similar to Windows Mail, huh? http://uk-tiscali.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/uk_...amp;p_topview=1
Here's a set of links for preparing to setup Vista on Tiscali: http://uk-tiscali.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/uk_...;p_new_search=1
Also, at the bottom of the Internet Connectivity Evaluation Test there's a link to approved Vista modems - is yours on the list?
Finally, try this (it's a shot in the dark tho') - disable IPv6 in the network connection properties (it's only required by Vista's Meeting Space), and then disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag according to these directions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233
I have seen this fix mysterious connectivity problems with a local ISP in my area (I suspect that there's something in the router/modem/ISP that's not Vista compatible).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able. - John
