Outlook XP will not send email

By b.groves ·
This has been a tough issue. The config - Dell Inspiron Laptop, Windows XP Pro, MS Office XP, TrendMicro SMB Client/Server. Email is POP/SMTP account. Outlook XP will not send email. The Email Account Test Utility does not send either. Outlook Express with the same settings WILL send email. I have used both the ISP and the Hosted Domain account and no luck. I have turned off the AV and Spam Filter. I changed the SMTP port to 587. I have uninstalled Outlook and re-installed Outlook. I unchecked any suspicious Add-ins. No luck! Are there any suggestions to fix this? Thanks, B

create a new .pst file and dump a good chunk of your inbox into the new .pst file. You may have a mailbox or .pst limit that was reached.

PST file was reduced.

Scummy One,
Thanks for the reply. I failed to mention that I checked the size. PST started out at 1.8gb. Ran a Archive and a Compact and reduced the size to 1.3gb.
Also, when I reloaded Outlook, I created a virgin PST, put in the POP and SMTP settings and the problem still followed me. I assumed from that test that the problem was not the PST.
I created a new Profile as well and associeated it with the new PST and the problem still persisted. Any ideas appreciated. Thx, B
