Re: cannot send emails from my outlook a

When you are in countries like Indonesia you would be better off using VM web mail to send and receive mail. Using an e-mail client is fraught with difficulty. The VM servers will identify that you are connecting via a non-VM server and apply very strict spam avoidance measures by limiting severely the number of e-mails you can send.

Please don't send me private messages unless I ask you to.
I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

You won't have done. VM are tightening their spam prevention procedures. But the kind of issue you are describing has been around on these Boards for as long as I can recall and for at least as long as I have been here. It's just that it strikes quite randomly. It is also the case that spammers move their operations around the world and so Indonesia may the latest location for this kind of stuff.
