I have a secure wireless network for my house using network authentication WPA-PSK and data encryption TKIP and WPA and TKIP for the school's wireless. I use Outlook for my messages but I can't send messages from my house using Outlook. I have no problem sending emails from school. I want to know what settings do I need to change my home's network that will make it possible for me to send emails using Outlook. Whenever I try and send an email from my house, this is what the error message reads.

"Task 'Clark XXXXXXX - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'"

Any help would be appreciated!!!

It's not a wireless network problem, it's you outgoing SMTP server. Are you using the school's to send mail? If so, does it support SMTP authorization?

Hey Clark,
I was wondering how you solved that problem because I have the same one, but I cannot send or receive emails with outlook using my internet USB Key that I just purchased. Customer service told me that I need to configure outlook in order for it to connect to the internet using this key.
What do I do??
