Thanks for your response Falko
Iv'e attached my mail log. mail.txt
. The link you suggested I will look at again when I'm at home.
I had read it before posting this and did'nt think it was relevent, but I may be wrong and will follow it through when I get home, but at least I can send. I am not running webmin so how to I check "SMTP Port Options" from the command line interface.
thanks for your help
