Windows XP configuration
I would appreciate any help on this issue - I have installed XMail on my Win XP Pro laptop, following all instructions from Halfdone.com (http://www.halfdone.com/Articles/XMailInstall/) - a very good tutorial if I say so myself, and I do. :)
I am trying to set up my own machine at from my laptop to send e-mail using XMail; thus while following the instructions at halfdone.com I replaced the domain names provided in the tutorial with 'localhost'. This is the only way I could think of to send e-mail from my machine.
Using this configuration, however, my e-mail client connects to localhost, and asks for my password. The password I used in the installation of XMail seems to not be acceptable, and I am asked again and again for my password.
I am thinking that there is something I did wrong in my configuration. The totorial at halfdone.com is for XMail 1.6 & 1.7. Could that be it? Well, in any case, I have not found any instructions on how to send e-mail via XMail using your own machine, it seems like it's just for servers connected to the Internet backbone, or have a DNS server running on it, or something. I found many different non-XMail related GUI apps out there that would do the trick, but they're resource hogs.
Any help on this topic would be appreciated!
