Problems with Outlook Express

By papgas ·
For years now I have been using the Outlook Express as my sole e-mailer with no problems at all.
From December 24, 2003 and on can still receive and open the e-mails but I can send none and the only message that pops up after every try, is the following:
"The connection to the server has failed. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E".
No change has been made to the H/W and/or S/W, no windows update -- at least for the last 40 days, and no ghange to any parametres of the MS Office programs (MSO xp Pro).
The PC is a 2.4MHz Pentium IV with 1Mb ram on a Gigabyte 8IPE-1000 Pro M/B and the S/W platform is Win xp Home.

My heartiest wishes to all

One issue I've seen is if you have the upgraded MSN messenger, and does it start when you open OE? If so kill it. Incredibly this solves alot of problems with OE, and is a know issue at microsoft. I had to go to the full Outlook client due to the problems that update caused.

I am not using the MSN messenger. Instead, whenever I want to go AV, I just click on Win Messenger.

Thank you, anyway.

at there is a program called active ports.
install it and see if port 25 is already open by another program by any chance.
Else I would suggest the clean install anyway.

I have checked port 25 again and again. Unfortunately!!!, there is NO problem with it.

Thank you, once again, Leopold for your time.


PS. Coming week-end I am going to create an account to my son's PC and see if it works. Mean time I send all my e-mails from my laptop.
