    Trophy Points:
    One of my clients is trying to set up an email program.

    For SMPT, he is trying, but it's not working.

    This is what he told me:

    "It waits for 120 seconds, the default timeout, and then comes back with a message
    that says, "connection to socket failed"

    So to be precise, in the section that says:
    Outgoing Mail Server

    Type: SMTP Port: 25

    Server Name:"

    When I use those setting to send mail it fails. How am I sending you this email? It
    is because I am using my ISP's mail server for outgoing mail until I can figure out
    what is wrong

    Any idea what could be wrong?
