New Service Provider & email

by buffaloriver321 / December 28, 2013 12:10 PM PST

I recently dropped my old ISP and had to get a new email address with the new provider. Everything I've had set up for the last few years has the old email address so, I went to Google gmail with a new email address in Windows Live Mail Windows 7. My old address still shows in Windows Live Mail and I can receive mail through the old address but cannot send, everything hangs in the outbox and I get the error "can't find the server" error message OX800CCCOE. My question is how can I verify that the gmail account in Windows Live is working properly? When I send a message I can choose between the old email address and the new gmail addres? I'm thinking about just deleting everything associated with the old address but, hate to loose old emails and contacts.
