I recently had to re-install Windows XP Home and did so with help of Dell ($50)

All went well until I attempted to send an email via Outlook. Receiving was fine but sending was refused with a notice "Command Received: 539 Authentication required"

I called my ISP. They checked system and said it was not a server problem.

I called Dell and they wanted 130 bucks to help me fix it. Microsoft wants $50.

Can anyone help me with this, please?

Thanks

Go to the website (home page) of your ISP. Look around for FAQ's which will guide you through the setup process. You could also post here who your ISP is and maybe someone else will have the same ISP and can help you.

Bruce, repeat after me:

FAQ's are my friends.

Good to know you got the issue resolved.
