Windows live mail not sending

We operate Windows Live Mail 2011 with Windows 7.  Lately, the program does not send and we get the following error.

The connection to the server has failed

Server: ' '.

Error 0x800CCC0E

Protocol: SMTP

Port: 25

Secure (SSL): No.

Socket error: 10060

Other computers are fine, but use MS Outlook.  Windows Live Mail is added to the firewall.  Help!


Please follow the instructions on this page to apply the settings recommended for Comcast: to reconfigure your Windows Live Mail client to use SSL instead of port 25

After, click work offline and delete all messages pending from the Outbox (below the records of account in the folders pane). Then close WLMail and wait a few minutes before resuming. Compose a new message to test and send it to yourself. Post a new message in your response.

    I assume you have an hotmail/outlook/live email address.

    Microsoft migrates all users to a different format.  WLM can be used, but may not be used in 'delta-sync '.  It must be used via IMAP.

    You must have the latest version of WLM

    You must remove the current account (after the registration of your data) and reinstall using IMAP

    IMAP for PC

    Server of incoming IMAP mail

    IMAP -
    Server port for incoming IMAP mail: 993; Encryption: SSL

    Outgoing mail SMTP server

    SMTP -
    Outgoing SMTP mail server port: 587; Encryption: SSL (TLS)

    Server requires authentication (THE)

    For more information go here

    IMAP for MAC does support IMAP and SMTP.

    Incoming server:
    IMAP: imap -
    Port: 993
    Encrypted connection: SSL
    Outgoing server:
    SMTP: smtp -
    Port: 25 or 587
    Encrypted connection: TLS
    Username: your username
    Password: your password
    This does not work on mac os x mail unless you disable the pop in your first account. If you have mac os x mail and you do not disable the pop in your account first, mail will be automatically set up pop and smtp.

  • Windows Live Mail safe sender list does not work.

    When I click on the safe senders list, he said:

    'Safe List Denders Only mail from people or domains on your safe senders list is delivered to your mailbox. »

    I click on this. Also, I click on "Also trust e-mail from my Contacts" and "automatically add people I e-mail to the safe senders list.

    I click on this... Words.

    I use the version of Windows Live Mail 2011.
    The formulations in your safe senders list are not the same as mine. (See screenshot at the end of the answer.)

    You don't "click on it. You must enter the addresses of the list in the box of > then click on add > and then click OK.

    Do not check the "add automatically people I e-mail to the safe senders list" for reasons of security. What makes you so sure that people that email you are "safe"?

  • Windows live mail not stop 'download' of new messages.

    Hello, I am running windows 7 on a samsumg RC512. I use windows live mail to check the corporate e-mail. The e-mail account is a pop account. Any time that I start direct mail it will download new messages and send those coming out. Then it starts to 'download' an infinite number of new messages that actually do not exist. It does not overload the machine or anything like that. Just like that until I hit the stop button. Problem is that if I do not have this message that I need to send will not be delivered, because it keeps doing this download new message loop. I tried unistalling the AVG antivirus and backup program (11 Cobian), nothing works. The account settings are ok and I don't know what to do here. I appreciate anyhelp thanks!

    You can back up your messages and contacts before you uninstall / remove Windows Live Mail. Refer to the post of Raphael_S of this link.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Thank you.

  • Windows Live Mail 2012: Send and receive Gmail but my other account will receive only.

    I have two email accounts in my Windows Live Mail: Gmail and the other through my nephew of the new server. The gmail account's sent and received on my Windows 7 PC, but it will only receive but not send. He put WLM 2012 on his windows computer with the same settings as I have, and it works. I have a Windows 7 laptop which is using WLM 2011, and it works perfectly with the new settings.

    This is the error message I get trying to send an email but that remains in my Outbox: Windows Live Mail Error 0x800CCC0E. Protocol: SMTP; Port: 465; SSL: Yes; Socket error 10061.

    Someone has an idea what is blocking the sending mail?

    Thanks - that's much better.

    Server: ' '.

    I was surprised to find an answer to my DNS lookup for the server, because at first glance, I would say it was misspelled. I could not connect with the telnet server, however.

    It is a web - mail, the company hosting, so I guess that this is the area that you are trying to access. Please carefully check the parameters that you has been provided for this account; If the mail server is actually, you can make the correction by right-clicking the name of the account in the folders pane and selecting Properties. Server names are entered on the servers tab.

    Please let us know...

  • Windows live mail (receiver sending suspended


    I added a new account to Live mail but I need to keep the old account, as I have a lot of emails arranged in folders so that I can return them.  I must however have tried to send a new email to send instead of my account newly set up using the old account. Now when hit send/receive it just hangs saying she "runs."

    I deleted the items in the Outbox and no difference.

    I'd appreciate help on this point - in short to delete my old account.

    I managed to take off line (I had already deleted Outbox)...

    You must open the Outbox again after you be disconnected; messages that cannot be sent should return here, probably marked as read.

    If you don't see always not the message complained to delete, close, open a window of the Explorer (Windows key + E), copy and paste this line in the address bar and press enter:

    %LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Windows live Mail\Outbox

    Delete whatever it is in the folder, then launch Windows Live Mail again.

  • How to configure Windows Live Mail to send photos

    I can't send pictures in Photoshop format.  He requested an audit of the code that I don't have.  I need to open the pictures in the format of Windows Live Mail.

    Hi George,.

    > I can't send photos in Photoshop format.  He requested an audit of the code that I don't have.  I need to open the pictures in the format of Windows Live Mail. >

    Photoshop has no control on the Windows OS email application requirements. I think you will like the Forum of Microsoft. But while I'm Mac, not Windows and cannot say what will make Windows Mail, if you want to send pictures that are PSD files, you can try zipping the first. I don't know if you will be able to open them in Windows Live Mail. I don't know what it is. But the zip format might make it possible to send them a mail.

  • Show a total number of emails in Windows Live Mail, not only the total number in each file.

    Windows Live Mail on Windows 7-

    Is there a way to display the total number of emails you have? as opposed to simply show how many e-mail messages are in each file?

    In the section filters, it is customary to say: email unread (12).

    I did what you say.

    Now, in the views section fast, he added another line, so he said:

    Unread mail (12)

    All emails (12)

    But I know a have a few thousand emails into different folders, so, over 12 emails.

    I remember for a long time with a program called Eudora, I think, and he had a page that listed all of your files, with the number of emails in each file, and a total of all THE emails at the bottom.

    Of course, I can add them by hand, but just thought it might be something that, for me, added.


    In my WLM 2011, category "All electronic" shows only not reading the mails for all accounts. Once the emails are read, the figure in brackets will be gone too.
    I think that it is applicable to your case.

    One last thing, if you left click all emails, you will see a long list of e-mails.
