I finally got round to configurating Windows Mail today and guess what (suprise suprise
) I can't send any e-mails.
I double checked all the info was correct with My ISP and they asked me to send an e-mail through their own website (Orange). I had to fill in some questions and one of them was asking me for a nickname. When I send this e-mail I noticed on the heading 'Send by' that there was the nickname in front of my e-mail address which I thought was a bit strange?
The support guy just told me to contact my Laptop manufacturer and tell them to uninstall & reinstall Windows Mail. This sounded a bit odd so I tried to look for help on Microsofts site but everything I've done seems correct so...
Have uninstalled my AVG anti-virus protection and reinstalled unchecking the e-mail scanner box but still couldn't send any mail. I never knew that something so simple could end up being so difficult and frustrating.
The error message that came up when I tried to send e-mails said
'This message could not be sent- the authentication setting may not be correct for your SMTP server'.
I have tried altering settings in my account server but no luck.
Please can someone help
