Hi Bob,

I know this worked for me at some point in the past (I've since switched 
providers) - around this time last year, actually.  I had some hassle 
getting it working and it had to do with passwords - the password 
required to send (ie access smtp) is different from your "account 
password" if i recall correctly.

Course, I might be hallucinating again.

Good luck,
