Microsoft Winsock REF : Error 10053 (DB-Library)
Severity Level 2
Message Text: Attempt to bulk copy a null value into a server column that does not accept null values.
How do I fix that issue?
Thats the same error as the person who started this thread.
The problem is that also your ISP is blocking port 25.
The way you can fix this is the exact same way as he did (that is if your ISP did not close port 465)
Read "falko's" reply. You will need to set OE's SMTP port to 465.
