Error 503 Authentication Required. My Outlook won't Send. My emails stay in the Outbox. This error code suggests that I go to a certain Microsoft link, it steps me through some Email Account settings including giving it another email address of mine (this point kind of scares me)to get a verfication code, and ultimately I'm not sure if this affects the other email address somehow? I would be more comfortable doing this if what I was doing was explained to me. I'm running AVG Antivirus, but I don't think it's interfering. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Can you post the entire error message please?

Guessing from the meagre detail provided I would say that your smtp sever needs to be authenticated but we can't be sure until you post the entire error.

Yeah, I sure can. But I'll need about 2 1/2 hours to get home and get the full code (at lunch time), since I work for a living. :)

Open Outlook 2007 click on Tools > Account Settings > Highlight the email account > Change > More settings > Outgoing server > Check the box "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication" > Verify that the circle-box "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" is selected.

Alright Niyamath, I will save this as one of the attempts I make to resolve it this evening. Thank you!
