Are you using full (paid, part of MS Office) MS-Outlook, or (Free, part of Windows) Outlook Express/Live Mail?
and, who/what is you mail provider?

So i'm assuming there is no problem with incoming mail?

You may want to confirm your ISP server settings - it's also possible the ISP is having trouble. (and yes, possible that they are having trouble and you could get mail, but not send mail - probably two different servers)...

If you have the time, it might be worth a call to your ISP to see if there are any known problems..

Of course, as i always say, could be any number of abazillion other things - but I dont think there is any quick, single, one answer.

Just re-read your last post with my eyes open and realized you are using gmail...

yes, incoming mail is perfect. could it be the gmail then?

COULD be, but gMail is pretty stable, and doesnt usually go changing things.. Double check all your settings and make sure everything is correct.
I have had similar problems with Outlook in the past and the only way to fix it was to create a new Outlook profile and start over.

UPDATE:

i went in to check my settings (and start my email setup over if need be) and found a repair option under tools tab and then account settings. so i tried it for giggles. it worked! i can send again!

You must have a newer version of Outlook.. I don't remember that option back in the old days when i used it.
