How do I get Outlook to send e-mail ending with navy.mil

Grandmother

I have a granddaughter in the navy. I have her e-mail address but Outlook
2007 will not send nor receive e-mail ending with navy.mil. This is the only
way we can keep in touch with her while she is on deployment. Please someone
tell me how to set up Outlook for the mil.

Thanks,

Outlook doesn't care what is the recipient's e-mail address. Outlook
isn't involved in delivering your e-mails to the destination mail
server. Outlook is an e-mail client that connects to your unidentified
e-mail provider and it is your e-mail provider that determines if your
e-mail is deliverable or not. Outlook merely takes the list of
recipients for an e-mail, sends a RCPT-TO command to your outbound mail
server, and then that mail server handles the delivery.

Since you never defined "will not send" by providing the error message
returned by Outlook (for the rejection by your mail server) or the NDR
(non-delivery report) e-mail returned to you, just how could anyone
troubleshoot an error message that you didn't divulge here?

..mil is a valid top-level domain; see:
http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/mil.html)

navy.mil is a valid domain; see:
http://www.navy.mil/

However, that does not mean you are using a valid e-mail address.
Without the error message for you vague description of "will not send",
no one can address your particular problem.


--- Posting Hints ---

ALWAYS REVIEW your message before submitting it. You want someone OTHER
than yourself to understand your post. Also remember that no one here
is looking over your shoulder to see at what you are pointing. If you
don't well explain your situation by providing the DETAILS that you
already know, don't expect others to know what is your situation.
Explain YOUR computing environment and just what actions you take to
reproduce the problem.

Often you get just one chance per potential respondent to elicit a reply
from them. If they skip your post because you gave them nothing to go
on (no details, no versions, no OS, no context) then they will usually
move on to the next post and never return to yours.

When using a webnews-for-dummies interface (e.g., Microsoft's
Communities, Google Groups, or a leech site using a forum-to-Usenet
proxy), those are gateways to Usenet. Despite the pretense of a forum,
you are participating in a newsgroup (aka Usenet).

Regarding error or status messages:
- Do NOT omit the message.
- Do NOT describe the message.
- Do NOT summarize the message.
- Do NOT paraphrase the message.
- Do NOT truncate the message.
- Do show the ENTIRE message (but munge or star out personal info,
like your username in an e-mail address but not the domain).
And DETAIL the steps to reproduce the error or problem.
