when i try to send emails the message says "This message can not be sent because your act does not have an outgoing mail server. Choose from the list."  However, there is no list to choose from. How do I fix this problem?

We need much more information...

How are you trying to send emails?
Has this ever worked?
Do you have an Exchange server, FuseMail, etc?
Is there supposed to be a server to choose from?

Your original post is akin to calling the mechanic and saying "my car won't start...it's making a funny sound...what's wrong?".

If normal POP for single users, make sure in Outlook Account Settings (or any client) that Outgoing Server is properly authenticated and that the sending port is set for 587 / TLS.
