Can't send email - Not a user setup problem
Posted on 2008-10-23
I have a Win XP SP3 box that can't send emails. The messages leave the outbox and I get no error message from outlook. I set up an email account in Outlook Express and tried to send a message, but it too says that the message was sent, but the recipient never gets the message.
Everything appears to work normally. The message goes to the outbox and appears to have been sent. I check the sent folder and the message is listed as having been sent. When I check the account that the message was sent to, it never arrives.
In the Outlook account setup I can test settings and everything passes, yet no email messages are sent, even though the "Sending Test Email Message" says completed.
I am running Trend Micro for virus protection. I disabled Trend Micro but got the same results. I completely uninstalled Trend Micro to make sure it wasn't the culprit. I stil couldn't send email messages.
I can receive Inbound messages.
