Has anyone encountered intermitent problems sending email wirelessly?
I have an 800/G4 ibook with airport extreme which I installed and just set it up this past weekend. My email account is .mac, but my outgoing server is Verizon (DSL).
Today at home with my wireless Netgear 802.11g router and later at a Starbucks T-Mobile hot spot I couldn't send email. It worked on and off at home (and of course, when I was on the phone with the Verizon dsl rep), but I never could send at the hot spot.
I can receive mail and surf the web. Interestingly I had problems with the MacNN website not loading occasionally and had to do a "force quit" when this page got hung up and the little rainbow circle kept spinning. (I'm crashing a lot more since going wireless in the last 4 days.)
The error message in email that comes up when it won't send is saying something about "the server is not responding choose another server". So I'll choose another server and still no go. I've reset user name, password. etc.
As I said it's been an intermitent problem and I'm trying to isolate the problem. The fact that I had the same issue at Starbucks that I have at home tells me it's not the router, but perhaps the AE card?
Thanks in advance,
ps. I can NOT submit to this forum while I'm wireless. I have to plug in my ethernet cable to the computer and the dsl modem in order to send.
