    Still Cannot Send Emails

    I followed the instructions on how to correct this problem from previous
    posts. I restored my mail account, disabled virus scan, check all setting,
    and verified all authentications. Still cannot send emails and get the
    following error message:

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Records of Joseph James
    Oleskow', Account: 'Worldnet', Server: 'mailhost.worldnet.att.net', Protocol:
    SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Can anyone help? I was able to use it the day before yesterday, but not
    since yesterday afternoon.

    Re: Still Cannot Send Emails

    Chances are, it's not your email program. Who is your home ISP, and
    were you sending from home? As a general rule, the owner of a port 25
    SMTP server you are using must be the same as the company providing
    your Internet connection at that moment. For more on this see
    http://www.postcastserver.com/help/P..._Blocking.aspx

    The best solution is to use an SMTP server that supports a port other
    than '25'. You're in luck. Read these instructions, especially the paragraph entitled
    "I am connecting through a high speed connection or another ISP..."

    http://help.att.net/docs/use/email/g...STA&faqcounter

    Note the use of port 465 and SSL.

    Contact your ISP for the correct settings.
