In which I have a problem with SMTP


Boy-oh-boy … it sure would be great if I could send eMail … I can remember, oh this is going back weeks now, but I can remember a time when I would hit that little ‘send’ button and – whoop! – off my message would go! people would write to me, and I … I would write to them … man, those were the days … I guess I always just took ‘outgoing’ eMail for granted. now that, for some mysterious reason, I can only ‘receive’ eMail I realize how foolish I was to think I’d always have an accessible outbound SMTP server … oh please! ye evil demons that have befouled and befuddled my Outbox, begone! let me send once more!
