    My emails won't send

    Hi,

    Hope someone can help me! I had a problem a while ago and had to reinstall vista, since then me emails won't send (i can receive them). I get the error message below:

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account: 'pop.1and1.co.uk', Server: 'auth.SMTP.1and1.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    I've tried switching of my virus scaning software for emails (I'm using Panda), I've also tried downloading update KB941090 and this doesn't work... I also have the server set up with the correct incoming and outgoing ports for SMTP and POP.

    I've been trying to sort this out for hours! can anyone help?

    thanks so much, Helen

    You may want to take a look at your provider's troubleshooting page:
    http://faq.oneandone.co.uk/communica...ooting/10.html

    Note the reference to a port 25 block. That is a very likely reason for
    your trouble. For more on this, see
    http://www.postcastserver.com/help/P..._Blocking.aspx

    1and1 suggests changing your outgoing port number from 25 to 587.

    You're very welcome.
    Don't feel bad. Finding the 'simple' solution comes only after
    working with this stuff for years.
