Cannot send. Only receive emails
#1
Hi.
I have no problem receiving email from 2 hotmail accounts, but cannot send out any emails from either account.
Yet, I can send and receive emails with an ATT account!
I have changed ports, server settings, re-installed OE6.
This is the error message.

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: '*****@hotmail.com', Server: 'smtp.live.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 587, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '*****@hotmail.com', Server: 'smtp.live.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Try ports 25 and 587 without SSL checked, as i remember hotmail works with port 25 without ssl.

I am running Windows 7.  I have the identical issue.

My Hotmail account is set as a POP3 account.  I can receive emails but not send any. 

Outgoing email SMTP is set at 25 for the server port Number.  All the correct boxes are checked; in addition every possible variation I randomly tried anyway (I use the identical settings in XP and everything works).  My Gmail and optimum online (a local internet provider) accounts work in both directions but my hotmail account won't send mail.

The error I receive is:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'HOTMAIL', Server: 'smtp.live.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Help!

Thank you

Hello,
most likely you have not checked the smtp authorization checkbox. Please take a look on attached image
