Can send & receive Email when I click on mail while on the internet.
When I'm in the My picture application and try to Email a picture directly from the application I get the following error message.
'The host "http" could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly, account :HTTP, server http Protocal SMTP, Port 25, Secure SSL No Socket Error 11001'
This problem happens with other applications too.
Don't know how to check what my outlook express settings or what my application settigs are either.
As you can readily see I'm not big into this stuff. Any help will be appreciated but answers have to be worded for a novice to understand.

The application may have a assoication problem. Like in IE what you have to manually task it to use certain application to do certian jobs. I not familar with that application's setup. Check under options to see not only what client it uses but what the setting are. If you have OutLook but do not use it, it very well could pointed there instead of OutLook Express.

If it's not an association problem as acklan says - then it may be a problem with your SMTP setup (I'm not real good with this stuff, so please bear with me! :thumbsup:

When the program errors out on you it says: The host "http" could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly, account :HTTP, server http Protocal SMTP, Port 25, Secure SSL No Socket Error 11001'

This tells me that there's an email account named "http" on a server named "http" using the SMTP protocol, etc, etc, etc

Now, since not many folks would use this name (http) for their account and their server - I presume that it's the default settings on your email program.

Also, this is vaguely reminiscient of attempts to send email when an email client isn't setup. This begs the question - what do you use to send email? Is it only while on the web (like in Yahoo or Hotmail) or is there a program that you use to read your emails (like Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Eudora, etc)?
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.
