For the last 4 days, Outlook will not send my messages. It still receives
normally. However, I have to go to my email provider's site (for webmail) in
order to send emails. Of course, there I don't have the messages to reply to
or my Contacts. It's a pain. I spoke with the email/internet provider to make
sure my Incoming (pop3) and Outgoing (smtp) server address info was correct.
It is. However, it still won't send emails. They said it must be something
I have Outlook 2003. When I go to Tools, then Email Accounts, and I view my
existing account, I can click "Test Account Settings." This does everything
right except "Find outgoing mail server" (says Failed) and "Send test email
message" (says Failed).
Here is what it says under Errors. "Send test email message: The specified
serve was found, but there was no response from the server. Please verify
that the port and SSL information is correct. To access these settings close
this dialog, then Click More Settings and click on the Advanced tab."
"Find outgoing mail server: Unable to
connect to the outgoing mail server
(SMTP). Please verify the server name in the outgoing mail server field. If
that information is correct, close this dialog, click More Settings and
verify the port and SSL information on the Advanced tab."
The server names are correct, as I checked with my
provider. What is the
port and SSL? Could these suddenly not be working?
Can anyone please help?! Thank you so much.
