Hi, I just set up Windows Live Mail and am receiving this error when I attmept to send mail via GMail's IMAP service. All settings are correct according to GMail's instructions for IMAP use with Windows Mail. Here is a copy of Windows Live Mail's error message with the recipient changed to hide the personal ID of the original sender/designated recipient:

Go to the website of your ISP, they will show you how to set um WLM. Use their setting for sending. You can use the name of your Gmail account to show as the "send to" for replies.

As always Dwarf has given very good advice. If you find however that the information provided does not work, it may be due to a situation that I had. The ISP, blocks the sending of mail via another email provider. If that be the case, try my suggestion, it worked for me.
