I've experienced the same problem: all computers in my home suddenly not
being able to send mail (receive is fine). Here's the error message:
The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account:
'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'smtp.comast.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
I've tried changing the numbers from 25 to 26 and to 587. I've deleted the
account and re-installed the account. My next thought is to delete Windows
Mail and re-install. Any other suggestions?!
