I can connect to the mail server by using that telnet command.
I just checked my own computer and found out that I can't send email. I get the following error:
The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's e-mail address. The sender's e-mail address was 'email@example.com'. Subject 'testing', Account: 'incoming.verizon.net', Server: 'outgoing.verizon.net', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '553 Authentication is required to send mail as <firstname.lastname@example.org>', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 553, Error Number: 0x800CCC78
I don't know if this is the same problem as my wife's computer. In any case, I'm almost glad I have a problem on my computer since it makes more sense.
