      Re: Is sky / Google's smtp server down?

      I thought Google hosted the SMTP for sending?

      Network Error (tcp_error)

      A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
      The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

      For assistance, contact your network support team.

      How many times have we seen that?

      I can send again now.

      It was my outgoing settings, somehow they had changed slightly.

      Only I access this computer and I changed nothing.

      Have run several virus and spyware scans and nothing shows, so don't know how the sttings changed.

      Not installed anything recently either.
