I had that problem with an ISP at one time also. It's not the address
you're trying to send "to", but the one you're trying to send through. I.
e., you're trying to use an SMTP server of an ISP that is different from the
one you are actually connected to. Some allow this, some don't. I guess
the other people who aren't having problems are using the smtp server for
the ISP that you guys are connecting to. Seems like you should just change
your SMTP setting, unless there is some particular reason you want the mail
to show up at the destination as having come from that other ISP's site with
the user name you have at that site. The only way I was able to accomplish
that was to log into the mail system at the other site via the web browser
and do the send mail directly from there.
