    vista mail problem

    I too am having the mail problem. Can receive, but can't send. Messages
    just sit in the Outbox. Have contacted my dsl provider AT&T, looked at all
    possible connectivity problems, they say the problem resides with microsoft.
    Anyone have any luck fixing?

    Im sure BJ your problem lies in your settings with your in-come settings
    that is. I had my provider help me and we got it right. Call provider again
    and get different person. Its the incoming settings, bet on it.

    Have you checked against AT&T's instructions for setting up to use their
    email servers? Such intructions are often written by someone better than
    people who answer the phone for problems.

    Also, can you move the oldest message in your Outbox to the Drafts
    folder, or delete it? If neither works, download and install this fix,
    with Windows Mail not running:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/941090

    Although it's labelled as for messages stuck in the Outbox, it also works in
    other folders. If you don't know whether to use the 32-bit version or the
    64-bit version, try the 32-bit version first. Certain common antivirus
    programs, such as most of those from Norton or McAfee, or a recent one
    from Trend, tend to cause such problems, although seldom immediately,
    so if you have such a program, remember where to find the fix - you are
    likely to need it again.

    Re: vista mail problem


    my problem is similar but has a slight twist. At home I use a wireless
    connection. I can download my windows mail and view web pages and access my
    network, but, I cannot send through windows mail. I can send through webmail
    though.

    At work I connect with an ethernet cable. When I open Windows mail
    everything in my outbox gets sent, no problem.

    I have been using windows mail for several months and all of the sudden this
    happened. I installed Adobe Flash. The creation program. Not the reader. This
    is all that has occured.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Re: vista mail problem

    Sirr internet explorer won,t let me open my mail. The e-mail comes up
    normaly and I can delete any line but when I try to open to read a mail I
    immediatly get a box stating that internet has stopped working and it will
    try to reconnect. It goes through the reconnecting process but when I try
    again to opĂȘn the mail the same thing happens. From rndwhite@xxxxxx

    Do you get an error message when you try to send? If so,
    right-click on your error message, copy, then paste it into a reply here.
    We can't do much troubleshooting without the complete error message.

    This newsgroup is dedicated to the Windows Mail email program.
    Sorry, reading webmail with your browser is not covered here.
    Ask your mail service provider for help, or check with the Internet
    Explorer forums.

    Re: vista mail problem

    Sorry, yes I do get a message.

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account: 'the.hfo',
    Server: 'smtp.gmail.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket
    Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    To reiterate:
    wireless - no
    wire - yes
    installed flash

    Also, when I installed flash my computer crashed. I eventually got it
    installed but am having trouble registering.

    Thanks.
