    socket error 10060 0x800CCCOE smtp

    I could not send out emails but could receive them on my new Windows Mail,
    after sending without problems for weeks. I have comcast as a provider. My
    SMTP port was "25" Someone on this problem-solving list suggested going to
    the Comcast site and following their instructions for set up/configuring
    Outlook Express. I did that and noticed that not only was I supposed to have
    checked "server requires authentication" (which did NOT solve the problem)
    but that the "Outgoing mail(SMTP) (under "Advanced") was not supposed to be
    "25" but "587". When I changed that, it worked and I was able to send my
    mail. Bless you, whoever suggested going to that site and checking an
    unlikely issue (i.e. instructions for Outlook Express when I have Windows
    Mail). Yay

    Good to see you got the problem resolved.
    All email programs use the same basic settings because the POP3
    protocol is universal.

    I fought Paul's problem for several days and talked with several Microsoft
    support people with pronounced accents and not one of them was able to tell
    me the resolution to the problem was the "587" entry. Of course when I
    changed it from "25" to "587" everything worked perfectly. Research on the
    web discloses many, many folks having this same issue, thinking it is a
    problem with MSN or Microsoft or whomever. I am going to write a scathing
    letter to Microsoft regarding this issue and total lack of competent tech
    support on their end. They should have been able to resolve this issue for me
    with the first contact I made with them!

    I agree that even first tier tech support should have been able to
    resolve this quickly. However, the primary blame falls on Comcast
    for making this change on their mail server without first alerting their
    customers.

    Hi,
    I had this problem with Windows Mail in Vista home edition and it
    started to work with the following setting:
    - Incoming server protocol: IMAP
    - Incoming (IMAP) server: ask from service provider
    - Outgoing (SMTP) server: ask from serice provider
    - E-mail user name and passwork: as normal
    - Save password: yes
    - Outgoing mail server uses authentication: yes
    - Outgoing mail (SMTP) port: 587
    - This server uses SSL protection: yes
    - Incoming mail (IMAP) server: 143
    - This server uses SSL protection: no

    I hope someone will solve their problem with this.

    Each mail provider has their own unique settings.
    It is always best to get them from your provider's website.
