Dear Sassy: I can't seem to send email from my laptop wirelessly. What is the problem?
~ Unplugged with no email

Dear Unplugged: This is a great question! It seems so obvious that we should be able to send email using Outlook on our laptops. However, there is a catch with Outlook (at our institution.) In order to send and receive emails on your laptop you MUST be connected via an Ethernet cable. You can login to the web version of Outlook and send/receive email on your laptop wirelessly. But if you use the regular version of Outlook you must be connected to the Internet via an Ethernet cable.
