cannot send mail using router

Posted: 01-26-2009, 03:48 AM
I use windows xp home sp3. on my wireless laptop.
at home I connect through a wireless router from my desktop using
windows xp home sp3.with no problems.
when I go out of town and hook up to a friends router at her house
through a cable there is no problems either. but when we go to her
mothers house 1 mile away from her we use her router through a cabel
and I cannot send email but I can receive it and go into news groups
and surf the net.her computer uses vista. how do I configure either
computer or router so I can send email? thank you

Most ISP only allow access to their SMTP server from their own IP addresses,
if your friend is on the same isp as you the smtp will connect, if the
mother is not, your ISP smtp server will not allow connections from a
foreign ip address.
If you are all on the same ISP, then obviously I am barking entirely up the
wrong tree.
