I feel really very odd about something I just discovered. I'm kind of still in shock. I'm wondering if I have lost my mind! lol Have you ever been under one impression about something and then after a long while discovered you were incorrect. And the fact that you operated under this wrong assumption, has now caused you hours of unecessary work! OMG. This is what happened. I still can't figure it out. Maybe someone else can.
My business email is one that I use through At&T. I use Outlook Express for this. When in my office this all I use for business, however, when I would physically leave my office, I could access my inbox, but when I would try to send emails from Outlook Express out of my office, it woud bounce back and not allow it. The emails I attempted to Reply or send out would stay stuck in the Outbox, but never get sent, no matter what I did.
I spoke to my computer guy and several people at work and friends about it. They said yes, that was normal and that they used other ways to send theirs too. I even talked to At&T about it. So, I would send my emails either from At&t webmail or I would go to my Road Runner account and send them from there. I did this for years.
Yesterday, I was out of the office and checking my Outlook express inbox messages and without thinking sent a Reply, forgetting that I had to go to my Road Runner account or Att& webmail to do that. Only it went through. I was shocked. I then sent test messages and they went through. I dont' get it. I feel so foolish.
What has changed? Why did all my emails in the past not go out and why did others agree that theirs didn't either?
I'm super happy, because this saves me so much time in replying and sending emails when out of the office. I can just go straight from my At&t account. I just don't know how I missed this back in the day. Maybe in the scheme of life, it's no biggie, but for me this is huge! lol
Has Outlook Express changed something?
