Nathan,
I ran into a similar problem just the last day or two. I had set up OE for
my ISP account the same way I would for a normal connecton, making the
appropriate entries for POP3 amd SMTP servers. I could recieve from my ISP
incoming through the AS/400, but I couldn't send, kept getting an error
message about "unable to relay'. The remedy was to insert the AS/400's SMTP
address for my ISP account, and it seems to be working properly now. Hope
this helps!

Kenny
