I have Outlook 2010 and it seems as though it's not sending emails to the outside world.  I re-imaged my pc and setup outlook and although I can get emails, I cannot send email.  I get a bounce back from every person I send out.  

I have POP3 email.

Also, I need to find my contacts, but don't know where they are located.

Have you verified your pop email settings in Outlook? Your contacts for outlook are contained within a .pst file.

Who is your mail provider, and what POP/SMTP settings are you using?  Your mail provider should be able to give you instructions.  As far as contacts go, if they were stored in Outlook and you did not back them up before re-imaging, or backup ypur mailbox, they may be gone.

If you re-imaged your PC then your contacts are gone unless you have a backup somewhere.
If you can't send mail then most likely your outgoing server is setup wrong.  Wrong port is most likely since a lot of ISPs are using non standard ports.  What ISP do you have and what is the bounce message?

Also, do not forget that for sending email, many mail systems now require authentication. This is in advanced account settings and is in addition to SMTP settings and port numbers (which are also important, of course).  ... Thinkpads_User
