i can get mail coming in

i cant get mail i sent out

I had to sort this out for my In-Laws a couple of months ago (well similar) Windows XP with Outlook and they were stupid settings, so if your still having the problem i might be able to get them next week sometime, but cant remember off the top of my head. It might have been Orange for outgoing, but really cant remember and it was a pain in the bum to find. Let me know,

Fixed

whats "freeserve" or "now on 7" got to do with anything?
if hes got a new machine and was using orange mail +thunderbird before, use mozbackup to save settings and retore to new machine.
