I've been using the mail server of my broadband supplier. So in this case it is virgin media. There is no email account set up with my host, although I am contemplating it.

It's not about the e-mail account, but about the mail server. Your ISP probably requires you to be on their "line" in order to use their SMTP server. There's a fair chance you can't use your ISP's mail server from your web site's host (you could try it using your credentials for your broadband supplier).

So, in most cases, your web host offers a mail server as well that can be reached from their network. Check out their documentation / faqs for more information.

Cheers,

Imar

Sure it makes sense now you say it. On local host I'm using my broadband account so I'm on their line. When the site is uploaded its on the hosts line.

Thanks again Imar. You have helped me out quite a lot and in your honour I am going to name a recipe after you (opt out available ).

Sounds like an excellent plan. Looking forward to finding out what you "cooked up"... ;-)

BTW: no need to quote the entire message when replying here; since all posts are packed together it's easy to see what you are replying to.

Cheers,
