    [align=left]On my laptop, I cannot send emails when using Outlook 2003. I can receive but not send. I have been told by other IT types that I need to open up all the ports on the Linksys wireless router (WRT 54GS). Has anyone else run into this issue and if so, how did you configure your router to deal with it. This laptop works on other wireless networks, it only screws up on my home system.

    You don't need to open ANY ports to send email. More than likely you have Outlook configured to use a SMTP server other than your ISP's and your ISP is filtering port 25. (The SMTP port.) Check with you ISP and see what they say. This is a very common problem for residential DSL.
