Outlook Express 6, times out when sending mail, on a specific computer.
Outlook 2000 on the same computer sends and recevies fine.
When connected to the Internet via LAN Proxy, the timeout occurs. When
connected via Dial-Up or Broadband, it works well.
I've tried multiple accounts and the yeild the same result. It happend with
or without anti-virus software and/or firewalls.
Could it be the application itself?

Finally Stumped,
Silas.

Which application? The mail client (MS Outlook Express)? Or the LAN proxy?
My money will be on the LAN proxy.

1. Increase server time-out setting at Tools>Accounts>[mail
account]>Properties>Advanced.

2. Outlook or Outlook Express hangs after you send an e-mail message with an
attachment:

Ignore the subject of this KB article. See the appropriate 'If You Connect
by DSL, Cable Modem, or LAN' section which deals with MTU/MaxMTU values.
Also see the Note at bottom of page.
