My Vista Mail will not send mail through my Qwest mail account (not Microsoft live mail) I know this problem has been around the net help forums for at least 4 years, and my ISP sent me an email saying that it wasn't their problem. So I will try to present it here and be brief whilst providing all the info I hope will help.
First ~ I can receive all my mail; from both qwest (my service provider) and free web mail providers through my Vista Mail set up. But when I try to send an email through Vista Mail I receive this Error Message:
The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Mail Test', Account: 'Home', Server: 'smtp.q.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 587, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
I have followed the instructions from qwest on setting up Windows Mail several times, but still no luck.
The Qwest 'Windows Mail Configuration' page, can be found here: http://myqwest.com/files/qwest/suppo...ndows_mail.php
I have also disabled email scanning in my antivirus (AVG).
Again ~ I know that this problem is an old one. But there aren't a lot of new answers in the last couple of years so I'm hoping maybe there has been a miracle solution that I simply have not found.
Any and all help will be gratefully accepted!
