I've been using Outlook 2002 for almost a year without problems. All of a sudden, Friday morning, it stopped sending most emails. (our power went out Thursday night for a couple seconds but I have good surge protection) They stay in the outbox and never leave. I have no trouble receiving emails, but I can't send or reply.
I've checked all my settings and they've not changed. The incoming and outgoing server info is correct When I click "Test Account Settings" I get the error message:The specified server was found but there was no response from the server: Please verrify your ssl and port settings under the advanced tab.
Now, I have two accounts...Outlook Express and Outlook. Outlook Express wasn't working with for the same reason in all the pc's at my house, but I recheched the authentication box and it now works with Express. With Outlook, I'm really logging into my server at work, so it's a different email address, but still goes thru Comcast....I've tried enabling my anti virus software, power cycling, resetting the email account, tried every different setting under the sun, contacted my sys admin...nothing works at all...any help would be greatly appreciated.
I've tried finding an answer on the net and at Microsoft, but no luck.
