To everyone who responded, Thanks for the great suggestions. A couple of you replied that they've seen issues with this and resolved them by closing down Outlook, by the "File --> Exit" method rather than the "X" in the upper right. I'm really beginning to suspect this because the pastor I was working with told me that our senior pastor explained to him that he could send from a particular coffee shop in town when he couldn't from church. Though I can't personally see a down side to having an office in a Starbucks (I don't know the name of the actual shop they were in), I think that the Outlook client get's some bad stuff in the cache that is flushed out when they shutdown their computers to go make the journey. The pastor I was dealing with said he went there and all of this mail sent without a hitch. The other possibility is that the ISP is blocking some particular port. We did just change ISP's within the last 2 weeks and according to this pastor, these sending problems originated at that time. We'll see.
