Send a Receive Error (Outlook 2003)

by Nautica922 / April 11, 2005 6:48 AM PDT

Task imap.aol.com - Sending reported error ( 0x800ccc78) Unable to send the message. Please verify the e-mail address in your account properties. The Server responded 556 client authentication required. Use ESMTP EHLO AND AUTH.

No idea why this comes up when I try to send E-mail. It worked fine for 9 moths then I get this message. I did not change anything at all. I?m trying to have Microsoft help me but does anyone know why I get this.

Now I can receive E-mail just fine but can?t send it. And I know the E-mail address that im sending to is correct b/c ive tried 12 different ones that I know work so.. ANY IDEAS?
If you want the pic of the error message let me know. ill E-mail it to yah.

They will say it isn't their error ...

In reply to: Why

because it runs on your other machine. And right they are.

The general advices are:
- check your settings; compare with the other machine
- make a new account with the correct settings, if you can't find the error in the current settings
- check for spyware and viruses; deactivate firewall
- run the Office Removal Wizard to remove Outlook and all it settings and start anew
- reinstall Windows and start anew

The last solution should definitely help. All other are a WAG.

Good luck,


Kees

A comment about firewall deactivation.

In some testing I found that Zonealarm has no true disable. It kept working even when it was "disabled." I had to uninstall ZA to kill it off.

But if - after a fresh reload of Windows XP and aol software - you still get a message like

Task imap.aol.com - Sending reported error ( 0x800ccc78) Unable to send the message. Please verify the e-mail address in your account properties. The Server responded 556 client authentication required. Use ESMTP EHLO AND AUTH.

and if it used to work in the past, then I think that either it's a wrong setting or some other software you installed besides XP (and possibly aol) interfering, or a problem with aol.

Keep searching!

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
