POP Username: firstname.lastname@example.org
POP Username: joeuser
In my Outlook Express settings, my ISP account is set as the default. I even deleted it, but still couldn't send using DSLR email.
You will have to use your ISP for SMTP mail. You can still use your DSLR email address even though you are using your ISP's email server.
In the box for POP settings, enter mail.dslr.net and in the box for SMTP settings enter mindspring.com (or whatever your ISP is).
Take care to enter your password correctly! The password IS case-sensitive!
Rejected Passwords - Make sure that the USER NAME you use is the one for your PRIMARY account and not an alias account.
Your password at DSLR is limited to 12 characters only ... characters beyond that are ignored. For the POP server, just enter the first 12 characters of it, or change to a 12 character password on DSLR.
It would appear that with some ISPs, you are unable to access the SMTP server "mail.dslr.net" and have to use your ISP's SMTP server to send mail.
In other words, if you are unable to send email using the settings provided, try plugging in the SMTP server address you normally would use for your ISP email account.
ALSO TRY USING PORT 26 INSTEAD OF 25
Thanks to rcdiver for posting this in the forum.
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server.
This occurs if you have not entered a full email address in your e-mail client's account settings.
In the e-mail box you must have a qualified e-mail address formatted like the one in the graphic: email@example.com
If your provider does this (Bellsouth and Earthlink, for instance) you will not be able to send e-mail without making some adjustments.
In your e-mail software, (Outlook, Outlook Express, etc.) please change your outgoing (SMTP) mail server for all secondary accounts as instructed here: /faq/6039
This will have no impact on how your sent mail appears or on the ability of people to reply to you at your secondary email account.
Note: Another method of dealing with this is now available. DSLR Mail now also listens on Port 26, so you can try putting that into your email program setup screen and see if you can send via that port.
You can read an informative explanation on why ISPs block port 25 in this thread:

Greylisted for 300 seconds (see ...)
The mail server generating this error message is using a system called Greylisting to filter spam and viruses. It relies on Mail Servers behaving according to the standards and usually doesn't require any action by the user. Your mails should only possibly be delayed.
