    Connect via the webmail of your account and verify that it works correctly for this purpose.  If this is the case, then try setting up a new identity via file | Identities.  Then add your e-mail account it (make sure that it didn't y no e-mail scanning turned on - see www.oehelp.com/OETips.aspx#3), and then see if it works very well.   If so, you can go to file | Import | Messages to bring them from the old identity.

    About 3 months ago, I started to apply the zone enter the network password in Outlook when I tried to send/receive email.  I was using WIndows 2003.  I worked with my ISP, that would be to delete and recreate my email accounts (sometimes it would work for a day or so, but the problem will come back).  Microsoft has stated that they do not support Windows 2003 and recommended that update for 2007.  A day after the upgrade, the message reappears.  I had my speed of the laptop and hard drive updated and cleaned for any potential problem, but the problem still exists.

  • BlackBerry smartphones send/receive emails to business via Wifi


    Is there a way to define the place of "BOLD" to send / receive e-mails to company via Wifi when, in a trusted network zone?

    Hi Kris_Stuart69 and welcome to the forums,

    You should have no problems at all sending or receiving emails (BES or BIS) when connected to WiFi. When your "BOLD" is connected to the mobile network and WiFi at the same time, it will use the WiFi as the preferred connection. You can test this by making that WiFi is connected (connection-> Services Status Manager) and it will show you what service is currently being used for Mobile, BlackBerry Internet Service and BlackBerry Enterprise Service voice. When BIS and BES show free 'WiFi', you would be able to turn off the mobile network and you will always be able to send/receive emails. Once you have done so, turn on the mobile network and you'll see the link always shows as "WiFi" instead of "Mobile network".

    I hope this helps

  • Windows live ID:0x800CCC0E, 10060 socket error - impossible to send/receive email using Windows Live Mail

    could not send email, now I can't send or receive email.  I contacted my IP to see if it was a problem on their end, and it wasn't. Help, please!

    Looks like you are running in a block of 25 port.
    As a general rule, the owner of port 25 SMTP server you use must be the same as the entity that provides your Internet connection at the moment. To learn more about this issue, see anti-spam
    The workarounds available when sending abroad are the following:
    1. use webmail to send (via your browser).
    2. ask your ISP if they have one port other than '25' for SMTP.
    3. If you use the same connection away from home frequently,
    Replace with the SMTP belonging in this regard. It's a bit
    difficult, but if you want to go this route, I can provide more details.
    4. If you frequently send to multiple locations, get a free Gmail account,
    Configure it to POP access, set up in Windows Mail and use it to
    your shipment of household chores. Gmail uses port 465 for SMTP, which is not blocked
    as port 25 is.

  • Unable to send an email using Windows 8 mail application

    Original title: Outlook.com with BTinternet email compatibility

    I have Windows 8.1 and try to use the Outlook webmail to send and receive emails from my btinternet account. I can receive but not send emails. I checked and rechecked the settings for incoming and outgoing messages, and all are defined by BT for use with webmail. Messages sent from my btinternet address returned by postmaster at Hotmail after several hours and after receiving a notice of delay

    Hi Bob,

    As you cannot send an e-mail using webmail on Internet Explorer, as well as the issue might be with BT server.

    To check if the problem is really with the Windows 8 mail application, I suggest you add another email and see if you are facing difficulties during use.

    Get back to us if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.
