Can't send mail with Otulook Express - Error 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E - LAN
Posted on 2006-03-25
I try to send e-mails and get the error message:
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'LDO', Server: 'xxx.xxx.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
I am generally not happy with the performance of my computer since I reinstalled it 2 weeks ago.
1. How do I determin what internet settings and speed I should set?
2. If my router has some kind of firewall that prevents my mail from beeing sent, how do I access it?
Actually, I don't even know if I have router. Since 3 month my wife has "Hikari Fiber" installed. Japanese product used in Japan. Before I had a LinkSys router that I could access with a certain IP-address, but I don't know how to do that with the new thing. The DNS-server seems to be: 192.168.24.1. If this Hikari Fiber is blocking the access? I don't know. I read the manual, or no I didn't. It's in Japanese, but I was looking for some IP addresses and maybe a username/password, but there was nothing to be found. I can ping the DNS-server, but when I type the IP into my browser, I get nothing.
I can access my mail server over the internet, and send / recieve mails there, but not on my computer.
What seems to be the problem?
In you need more information, then please ask me for it. I did read quite a lot of help pages and tried some things, linke pinging, but I just don't know enough to solve the problem. By the way I made a upload / download test. The download test was successful, but the upload test said, that there maybe hardware or software firewall interfering. I uninstalled my software completelly. So it must be hardware !?!
