    When I moved here, a next door neighbour sorted me with internet as I needed to work and the new connection wouldn't be fitted for two weeks, now the new has been installed I'm using that however I can't send email.

    And I'm not sure why, usually I just use as incoming and outgoing and use connection 'any available' but when they fit it, on my pc they set up an account broadband and called it RDS, now when email sends/collects it says rds, is that the problem?

    When first internet was added, it was just under Lan or high speed internet and had two connections, 1394 connection and local area connection, now they both show as connected but on top there's the RDS connection under Broadband, connected, firewalled, WAN miniport (PPPOE).

    So why has this affected outgoing email? Also how do I get it to connect automatically instead of me going into options at every start up to dial up?

    Thanks in advance...

    Depends on the equipment and ISP you are using, if you are using a broadband modem (normally USB that come free with broadband packages) these usually dont allow for an 'always on' connection, they have to 'dial up' a connection as and when needed - when you log off or shutdown your computer the connection is lost... (Can someone please clarify this - this is my experience but then again ive always had a router) :)

    If this is the case I'd suggest buying a router with a built in ADSL modem - you can get all in one devices with built in 4 port switch / wireless access point / ADSL modem / firewall etc for £50-60. If you do I favour Linksys by a mile - Everyone has their favourites but I find these the easiest to set up and install (Ive done a fair few, including D-Link and Netgear routers).

    Hope this helps,

    Rich :cool:
