Damn, try reading his post. Or not just taking a blind jab at what you think might be fact.
First of all, the guy was trying to send a message, not download an attachment or something similar.
Second of all, dialup has nothing to do with it, I can attest to this. Mail works, however slowly.
Lastly, his ISP (or network admin) probably has nothing to do with it. Unless they are using the man-in-the-middle technique, the fault lies on the side of the mail server.
What I would do if I were him is get in contact with the mail service provider and work this out.
It may be that you trying to connect to the SMTP server unauthenticated, though I'm chancing a guess there. Mail should ask you for a username and password if this is the case, though you haven't said as much, so I'll throw that out there anyway,
Since I don't know much more to say about this, rather than rant about what I don't know, I think I'll just let someone else with more knowledge about this sort of thing explain further.</strong><hr></blockquote>
Dear Spart, apparently u know nuts about this issue, so u cannot tell others off too.

I am using a dial up connection, and I encounter the problems Machadalic faced. I know he is trying to send a message, but sometimes one may be trying to do too many tasks such as receving large emails and sending emails at the same time.
I found out that most of the time, the error occurs when the above mentioned occurs. probably due to the fact that Mail is not fantastic at handling multi-tasks or due to the slow dial-up speed.
I expereinced such problems too with braodband, but rather infrequently, which leads me to assume that dial-up poses more problem due to the slower connection speed.
I am trying to help thats all sparty.
If u have a problem with that, something is wrong with u. <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />
