This is the Error Message of Outlook Express while sending a mail...
There is no prob retriving messages..
i have a local server with pop3 and smtp both servers 192.0.0.1
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was '[email protected]'. Subject 'hi', Account: '192.0.0.1', Server: '192.0.0.1', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <[email protected]>... Relaying denied.

This question was answered on February 15, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.A couple of years ago there were hundreds of relay servers on the internet where you could just go and send e-mails, and if you knew how, anonymously This of course was very nice, until spam companies started using them to send phony e-mails, you couldn't trace them back because the server would just send them, unconfirmed There are almost no relay servers anymore.
I assume that your e-mail server is located at 192.0.0.1, on the local network But you should know it's Internet address as well, for thet is where you recieve your e-mail Modern servers will not let any e-mail through without first checking if it's a real ip address or just a bogus one and 192.0.0.1 is a special address and cannot be used on the internet Of course most spam servers can overcome that in their own maliciosly benign way, but you need to have a legit means.
Instead of sending your e-mail with account:192.0.0.1 try sending it with your servers internet IP address I do not know what e-mail software your servers is running (possibly MS eXchange?) so I cannot give you more advice than that.
P.S Please provide more information about your network and systems next time, I would be able to help out more.
