Holy pepper flakes on a pleather jock strap—it is hella assedly cold.

I keep dropping PSAs and cock-blocking the pedantix, but this craigslist jr stuff is v. efficient in the dance. I have a brain-squeezingly bad email problem. Before I pay someone to come over and fleece me for a dose of nerd juice, I thought I'd prevail once more upon the generous and faithful readership. (Thank you for all the doctor tips. And I'm fine—this is a maintenance issue.) I know I owe everybody. I will try to make good on my debts.

Here's the problem. When I try to send an email, I get this message:

A message in your Outbox could not be sent using account "XXX." The server did not recognize the recipients or the server refuses to allow you to send mail.

5.7.1 ... Relaying denied

Error: 5550"

I've done some obvious stuff. I called Microsoft support for Entourage X, and I called Roadrunner. They both think everything's fine, though I don't entirely trust Roadrunner. My account works fine through Roadrunner's webmail page, and the Entourage works fine if I go out of the house and use an off-site wireless spot. All the SMTP settings and passwords are fine. I've even recreated the accounts several times.

Is this a port issue? Some kind of hardware thing? There were no changes made between Entourage working and not working. I am running Mac OS 10.3.6 on a Powerbook G4. Using a router to send cable signal to two computers. Hooked up to an Airport Base Station.
