Outlook Express fails to send messages
Posted on 2008-11-12
I am having an issue with outlook express. all of a sudden, it refuses to send email messages. I can receive email fine, but when i try to send a message, i get the following error:
"The connection to the server has failed. Account 'mail.comcast.net', Server 'smtp.comcast.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"
I have tried deleting the account, and recreating it, and also using another smtp server, that i know works. I have also tried forcing the system to sent the username and password.
All without any success. I am stumped for ideas.
