    Can receive but not send e-mails - via Sky ISP on Windows Mail

    Error message is as follows:
    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Test', Account: 'Steve',
    Server: 'smtp.sky.tools.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No,
    Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    This is driving me absolutely crackers and has wasted about 5 hours of my
    life. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

    According to Sky's instructions:
    http://mysky.sky.com/portal/site/sky...icleId=3075710
    you should be using port 465 with SSL for the outgoing mail server.
