We took my wife's notebook on vacation. The hotel signal was very low and as a result I could receive but not send mail in OE. I did all the googling and fixes I could find to no avail, but gmail worked fine, only my wife hated it. As soon as I hit the airport I tried OE and it functioned without any problems leading me to believe the "low" signal was the problem. I was just wondering if TB worked in poor signal areas before I install it and try to acclimate her to a different program. I have to admit that I based this whole theory on gmail working in the room, and OE working (finally) in the airport and at home.
