Hi,
I contacted my service provider with problem with my email, and they came back to me and said I should set my SMTP to smtp.saix.net.
Can you tell me how I do that? Is it in tools or internet options? i am on ordinary outlook (the old one I think) and I have windows XP

Try going to Tools> Options> Mail Setup> Email Accounts> and click on the account you want to adjust (there may be a 'Change' button').
From there for your 'Outgoing Mail Server', type in smtp.saix.net and save changes.

That should do it.
