One of 2 PC's networked with Neatgear router using BellSouth DSL. Both machines XP/SP2. Both malware, spyware and virus free. Brother's PC's, maintained by me.
Bro's machine just developed no outgoing email; all else, incoming and IE ops OK.
Error as follows:
"The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail.bellsouth.net', Server: 'mail.bellsouth.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"
Can use same account from the other PC OK.
Cannot send with any legit BellSouth account on this machine only. My own account brings same error.
Very familiar with OE. All settings normal unless I missed something real obvious. (I'm human.)
Web mail account OK.
BellSouth not blocking, I don't think.
