    I'm trying to set up my WIN/XP machine to access a WIN/XP
    network in another country. The Help info WIN/XP gives
    stops making sense halfway through and what I have
    cobbled together trying to make sense of it doesn't
    work. When I type smtp.xxxxx.com in the address bar of
    Internet Explorer, I get a 500 error message (Internal
    server error) which kinda says I've screwed up this end.
    The Help info that is meaningless on my machine is :-
    *******
    Open Internet Services Manager. <<SNIP>>

    To open Internet Services Manager, click Start, point to
    All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then
    click Internet Services Manager.
    ****
    When I click on Start, All Programs there is
    no "Administrative Tools" listed. Eventually found it
    under COntrol Panel / Perf & maint.
    There's no "Internet Services Manager" there so I click
    on Internet Information Services and follow the rest of
    the help to the letter.
    Doesn't work - 500 error!

    Fixed this thus far - I should have typed the smtp
    address into Accessories / Communications, not IE. I now
    have another problem - separate post coming up.
