Trouble with Outlook ver6

By pwills66 ·
I am having problems with responding to emails that use Outlook version 6.0. I am getting an error message something along the lines of "Message could not be sent. Problem with SMTP port 25." What could be the problem?

Email Error
I Can Receive Email, but I Can't Send

The Cause

The most common cause of this error is a restrictive (ISP) internet service provider. The ISP you're using won't allow you to use the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) that your email software designates. They do this to reduce or prevent abuse; they don't want junk mailers going through their network with masses of junk email.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solution

1. Change the settings in your email software so that the email account you're using designates an Outgoing Email Service that your internet service provider won't block. Your internet service provider should provide you with the address of an acceptable Outgoing SMTP Mail Server. This information is often listed on their website; if it isn't, call their technical support and ask them the address of their Outgoing Email Server. Then go into your email software and change your current Outgoing SMTP Address to the one your ISP requires.

2. After you designate a SMTP address not restricted by your ISP, you may still receive the following error:

Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 530, Error Number: 0x800CCC78

Now you are reaching the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server, but it won't process your request without further authorization. You will need to go into your Email Software and find the setting that indicates that your Outgoing SMTP requires further authorization. Select this setting and enter the username and password required by your ISP (or reqired by who ever is the administrator of the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server that's not blocked by your ISP). For example, at the time this article was written MSN Internet Service's SMTP Address was:
