I'll take your word for this.

Another reason why I recommend changing away from WLM. It appears that some issues haven't been resolved (like this one.)

We know there is no fix to send email from your old ISP email account. You have to be on their network.

Check your SMTP server settings

In reply to: e-mail struck in outbox Windows Live Mail

It sounds like you have something wrong in the SMTP settings for the new ISP, so check to be sure they're right. WLM was pretty buggy 3-4 years ago, but it's been pretty reliable for me ever since. I know Bob likes Thunderbird, and it's a good alternative if you can't get WLM to work like you want it to.

Good luck.

Re: can't send e-mail

In reply to: e-mail struck in outbox Windows Live Mail

As remarked above (in 2 different posts):
- If you use the e-mail address from the old ISP using the smtp server from the new one, it won't work.
- If you use the e-mail address from the new ISP using the smpt server from the same and it doesn't work, it's some setting.

So please tell the details.
