Email problems

Pipex was taken over by Talk Talk but is still my email address. I have no problems receiving, only sending. I am using windows live mail.

Email problems

Hi Bob,
I have checked with Talk talk and according to them all my settings are correct. I can send emails using there somewhat inadequate site and I receive them, which makes me think the problem is with windows live mail. I have tried using there help page but without success, but perhaps that's me.

Re: can't send

Could be settings. Could be a firewall or antivirus issue. Could be malware.

I'd start trying another email client for a test. Thunderbird is free and not so very difficult to setup. If that doesn't work either and gives the same error message, it's not WLM but some other cause.

Remember I am using the above page

And didn't find the SMTP server you are using.

Let me try this another way. Did you try what was documented on that web page?

Or are you adverse to change?
