    Hi

    Is there any possible way to configure Outlook 2003 to send email from a public WIFI hotspot without knowing the smtp information. I am traveling for work and can receive email but cannot send from anywhere; cafes, hotels etc.

    I know this is a common question but I have looked all over the web for an answer to this hoping it can be done but have not found a solution yet. Thanks for any help.

    -S.

    Shawn, not directly, that you can do now... Call your IT staff, adn find out

    what the OWA (Outlook Web Access) URL is for your company.... Usually it's

    somethign like "https://mail.companyname.com/exchange"

    You MUST know an SMTP server to use no matter where your are. That's how mail

    is sent. Why can't you use the one given you by your mail provider? As long

    as you properly authenticate to it, you should be able to use it from any

    network.
