Outlook....can't send email, but can rcv

by egatlin17 / March 11, 2013 10:55 PM PDT

I suddenly cannot send email in outlook, but I can rcv email. I've already scanned my laptop for viruses and ran malware and it all checks out OK. When I send an email it stays stuck in the outbox and never sends. The error I rcv is this:
"The connection to the server has failed. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 26, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"
Has anyone had this problem or know what I can try next? Thanks

Re: error
by Kees_B Forum moderator / March 11, 2013 11:14 PM PDT (just the first google hit for OUTLOOK 0x800CCC0E 10060) suggest that a setting is wrong. If you can't find that by comparing your settings with the ones prescribed by, contact their customer service. Things to check especially:
- Is it OK to have Secure(SSL) equal to No
- Is port 26 OK (25 is more common)

I've been working w/ my company's IT guy and he set this all up. He says the settings are correct. I'll ask about Secure SSL equal to No. And he changed the port from 25 to 26 to see what happens, but you're right, it was 25. I'll check out the google hits. Thanks for your input.

Well, the server doesn't think so. With correct settings it would surely connect.

Or something else is wrong on the server or on the network. But that's more unlikely.,
