    Send problem with Windows Mail. Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Hi, I have looked at all the different discussion threads and tried almost every single suggestion made but still have'nt had any luck so far.
    I can receive email but can't send any. What triggered this error is that, I recently moved from London to New York and I am now using a different ISP to connect to the internet. But my old setting should work (since it has worked in the past when I logged in from hotel or other locations using different ISPs.)

    I have tried changing the port numbers etc, but I keep getting back this error message.

    "The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Test', Account: 'O2 Email', Server: 'smtp.o2.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    You must go to the website of the new email provider to get the correct settings. Not just port numbers but all other settings as well.

    Hi Rich, Thanks for the reply. My email provider has not changed. The email account I am trying to set up in the Windows Mail is still my old O2 (UK) email. Only the internet connection I am using is provided by a different ISP (Optimum, US).
    I am still using the following credentials,
    Incoming Serves (POP3): mail.o2.co.uk - port 110
    Outgoing Server (SMTP): smtp.o2.co.uk - port 25.

    I have tried various things such as checking or unchecking the server authentication option and also changing the port number to 26 and 587. But nothing has worked so far.

    Kindly help.

    Many thanks in advance

    I know what the problem is. I had it, too. The new ISP is blocking the send port to avoid spam. The work around is to go to the ISP website find out the SMPt information (send information) and then for the return address use the email that you want to be sent to.
    It is also possible that the new ISP will give you a special port number to send via the email.

    If you have a problem give me the the ISP website and I will look for you, too.

    Hi Rich,
    Thank you so much for the guidance. I changed the smtp server details for the ISP and it worked.
    Appreciate your help on this.
    Cheers
