E-Mail send problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.outlookexpress.general,microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

I'm using OE and my OS is XPHome SP2 fully updated.
I can send an e-mail from within OE with an attachment with no problem

BUT if I R-click on a file and select Send To - Mail Recipient I get a TCP
error .
A TCP/IP error occurred while trying to connect to the server. Account:
'Paul Virgin', Server: 'smtp.virgin.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC15

Can anyone advise on how to fix this problem?

    Your firewall is likely seeing it as explorer.exe as the running process
    that's trying to send the file and thus your rules are, correct in my
    opinion, preventing that from happening. You can either modify the rules for
    the process or you can send the normal way. Alternatively most good software
    firewalls will have a rules mode that you can use where if something happens
    that's unusual like that it will prompt you to allow, allow once, or block.

    I'd suspected it was - if you have time and do not mind answering, what was
    your firewall? The answer you give here might actually enably myself or
    someone else to give a more exact answer in the future.
