I have tried everything I can think of, and evidently there is a routing error between where I'm at and where one of my domains lie.

Weird thing is, proxy servers can connect okay, so can many other countries (checked via proxies)...but I don't know how to put a proxy IP into Eudora, or change my net config to allow this.

Any tips from the pros? Thanks. I just want my mail :(

Eudora doesn't seem to support proxies. I checked the Version 4.3 help file and there's no reference at all, surprised me! I then dug into many of the Eudora config settings, it appears that if Eudora can't reach a mail server directly, no mail. Hope I'm wrong! ;)

Supposedly outlook express shares its internet connections settings with Internet Explorer. When I tried to connect, though, it went straight to the account, which still doesn't work. Going through a proxy seems like the only way, right now.

Has anybody else had success getting outlook to connect to an account via proxy?

Just to make sure I'm following the right path. You're trying to access an account somewhere outside of your current ISP and have trouble accessing your mail because of the proxy in the way, right?

Are you getting a 550 relaying denied code or something like that?
