    Windows Live Mail Outgoing / Send Mail Error

    Hi, I just set up Windows Live Mail and am receiving this error when I attmept to send mail via GMail's IMAP service. All settings are correct according to GMail's instructions for IMAP use with Windows Mail. Here is a copy of Windows Live Mail's error message with the recipient changed to hide the personal ID of the original sender/designated recipient:

    An unknown error has occurred.
    Subject 'Re: An email from {blank}
    Server: 'smtp.gmail.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0B
    Protocol: SMTP
    Port: 465
    Secure(SSL): Yes

    Go to the website of your ISP, they will show you how to set um WLM. Use their setting for sending. You can use the name of your Gmail account to show as the "send to" for replies.

    See here: Windows Mail - Gmail Help

    If that doesn't work, then see here: Configuring other mail clients - Gmail Help

    You might need to change the port number from 465 to 587, as suggested.

    As always Dwarf has given very good advice. If you find however that the information provided does not work, it may be due to a situation that I had. The ISP, blocks the sending of mail via another email provider. If that be the case, try my suggestion, it worked for me.
