Windows 7 Mail=== trouble Sending E Mail

I installed windows 7 and windows mail. The problem is that I can get my mail but haven't been able to send any mail and the messages that are in my sent box were never sent out.
I am at a remote location and not on my home ISP network. It worked OK on my VISTA but after the upgrade  nothing can be sent out. I believe I have the correct information in my Server because it was working before Win7. Is there a number that I can call if I can't get a answer here? Thanks, my frustration level is now RED!

If you are at a remote location, one of two things must happen for you to be able to send mail:

1. Your ISP must provide a sending port other than port 25 for you to connect to.  Virtually ALL ISPs will block port 25 traffic (SMTP email sending) to remote networks:

Port 25 Blocking

2. If your ISP dows not provide such a port, you need to get an email account with a national provider like GMail and use their sending server.  GMail uses a port other than 25 and requires SSL so it can be used from any ISP.  I do this with one of my personal accounts, I receive from this ISP, but send through GMail.

Note that if your home ISP offers a webmail interface, you can use this from anywhere.
