hi experts,

 i setup outlook a month ago with yahoo plus email and it was working fine until today. I changed nothing on my end. i do a test account settings and get the following...

Send a test emailed message: cannot connect to your outgoing SMTP email server. if you continue to recieve this message, contact your server or internet service provider.

i checked outlook plus settings and they are correct. I turned off firewall and anti-virus and same issue.
On the Outlook version that you use, in account settings, is there an option to test email account settings?

In Outlook 2003 it was something like:
Tools > Email Accounts > View/Change email accounts > click next - select change > Test account settings

Note that you will need to select the applicable email account if you have multiple accounts.

What happens when you do this test please?
i removed the anti-virus, re-installed and it worked. go figure...
Glad you were able to fix it. Thanks for the grading and points.
