How do I fix server error 8004849


This is from Microsoft:-

If you receive Server Error: 0x80048849 and/ or 0x80048820 in Windows Live Mail at home or while you're in your regular network, it may be due to the setting of the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) on the mail client.
If you get this synchronization error at a coffee shop, airport or a place from where you don't usually connect to the internet, we suggest synchronizing mail on your regular internet connection.
When the MTU setting on the mail client is larger than the MTU settings configured on network devices between your mail client and the mail client servers, some data packets may be lost, causing mail synchronization to fail.
Follow the steps given below to fix synchronization errors due to mismatched MTU settings:
Determine the MTU setting on your network device
Apply the MTU setting to your mail client
Determine the MTU setting on your network device
This is a trial and error process, and will be different for each user. You may have to repeat the procedure below a few times, before you can find out the MTU setting of your network device. Follow the steps below:
Open command prompt
Click Start ? Run ? Type cmd
In the Command Prompt Window, type in the following:
Ping <Mail server address> -f -l 1500
Notes:
The <Mail server address> is the IP address of the mail server that you are unable to synchronize with.
For Hotmail, 65.55.33.106 is the IP address for DeltaSync (mail.services.live.com).In this document we will be using this IP address as an example.
In the -l 1500, 1500 is the max MTU for Ethernet connections.
You may get an error like this (100% packet loss):
C:\Users\username>ping 65.55.33.106 -f -l 1500
Pinging 65.55.33.106 with 1500 bytes of data:
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.
Packet needs to be fragmented but DF set.
Ping statistics for 65.55.33.106:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss)
If you received the error above, subtract 28 from the 1500 bytes of data. In the Command Prompt Window, type in the following:
Ping <Mail server address> -f -l 1472
If you get a 0% Packet Loss with 1472, it means the MTU setting of your configured network is 1472
Note: If you continue to receive the error described in (b) above, repeat the above steps by subtracting 28 from 1472 bytes of data. Repeat these steps until you get a message for 0% packet loss. If you were able to communicate with the mail server at an MTU size of 1424, you will receive the following:
C:\Users\username>ping 65.55.33.106 -f -l 1424
Pinging 65.55.33.106 with 1424 bytes of data:
Reply from 65.55.33.106: bytes=1424 time=230ms TTL=241
Reply from 65.55.33.106: bytes=1424 time=196ms TTL=241
Reply from 65.55.33.106: bytes=1424 time=162ms TTL=241
Reply from 65.55.33.106: bytes=1424 time=163ms TTL=241
Ping statistics for 65.55.33.106:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss)
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 162ms, Maximum = 230ms, Average = 187ms
Apply the MTU setting to your mail client
Follow the steps below:
Open command prompt as administrator (you must be an admin on the computer)
Click Start ? Run ? Type cmd
In the Command Prompt Window, type in the following:
netsh int ip show int
You will receive a message similar to the following. Find the connection name that you use to connect to the internet and note the Idx value
C:\Users\Username>netsh int ip show int
Idx Met MTU State Name
--- ---------- ---------- ------------ ---------------------------
1 50 1472 connected Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1
11 20 1472 connected Local Area Connection
To apply the correct MTU setting on your mail client, type the following in command prompt:
netsh int ip set interface <Idx value> mtu= <MTU setting of your router> store=persistent
Press Enter
For example, if the correct MTU setting was 1424 and Idx value of your connection was 11, you will type:
netsh int ip set interface 11 mtu=1424 store=persistent
If (c ) was successful, you will receive the confirmation message "Ok"
Exit command prompt
Restart your computer
Open WL Mail and see if the issue persists.

Why do my emails to others show windows live mail not my personal email address?


Really need more info than what you gave.
Your emails are sending through the Live mail server. Your personal email? is that from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Check the setting or options on your email client (program) it should have a reply to field you could set that as your personal email address. It is also possibly where the setting is that is sending through the live mail server.
You might need to set your ISP as the default. For example I use Thunderbird. It checks my ISP email and 3 Gmail addresses but when I send by default I send through one of my Gmail addresses but I can use a drop down box to select a different send server if I want to appear as coming from a different address.

When I REPLY to SOME emails I get"message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was ....... etc." But when I create a new...


If you are using email like OutlookExpress, or Windows Mail, you may have linked to multiple email address' . So when you hit Send / Recive, its checking 2 or more email adds.. If so, one of them is not setup correctly for the Outgoing server. When you create a new email, it uses your default main email address, which is apparently setup correctly. When you reply to a mail which came in on the "other" account the outgoing server setup is wrong, resulting in the message you recieve.
You should go over the server setting for each account other than your default email account.

I can recieve email but I cant send any email out


If you can successfully receive e?mail messages, but can't send messages, then Windows Mail is having problems connecting to the outgoing e?mail server that's used to send messages. These are likely possibilities:
  • If you've never been able to send e?mail successfully using Windows Mail, your e?mail account is probably not set up properly. First, follow the steps to verify your e?mail account information in the "I can't receive e?mail" section of this help topic. If you verify that your e?mail account information is entered properly, you might need to change your authentication settings so that when sending mail, you sign in using your e?mail user name and password. Check with your e?mail provider to see if it requires authentication for sending e?mail.
    To use authentication when sending e?mail
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    5. If the account information that you use to send e?mail is not the same information that you use to receive messages, click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password that you use to send e?mail.
  • Many Internet service providers (ISPs) require you to be directly connected to their network to use their outgoing e?mail servers. If you're using a mobile PC and connect to the Internet using a different ISP (such as when using a wireless connection in a hotel), you might be able to receive, but not send, e?mail. Some ISPs will allow you to send e?mail when connected to a different provider if you use authentication when sending. Follow the previous steps to use authentication when sending e?mail. If your ISP doesn't allow this, you'll need to find out the name of the outgoing mail server for the ISP you're currently using, and then change the settings in Windows Mail to use it.
    To change the outgoing mail server settings
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then enter the new mail server in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) box.
    5. If the new outgoing mail server requires authentication, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    6. Click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password for the outgoing mail server.

Send button


You can try one of a few things.  First look at your mail your are composing. Notice the line that says from: it should be followed by your email addres.... Across from it should be the outgoing mailserver the account will be using. If that box is blank, clik on it and select a mail server.  Also, make sure the "only use this mail server" box is not checked. Once you uncheck, it should allow you to choose one of the available mail servers you already have listed. 
If you don't have any out going mail servers listed, then choose the "edit mail server list" option (in that same pull down menu).  Based upon you mail again setting, you will then enter the out going mail server.  An example would be.  (mail.charter.net.... or smtp.charter.net)  Check with you email service provider to determine what that setting should be.
Hope this helps! Let me know.

E-Mailing


This is because your server that you are trying to send email on doesn't support Pop3, SMTP, etc. Make sure it supports it first before attempting to enter it into Windows Live Mail.

Email


if you are using outlook, windows mail (vista), or outlook express, click tools > accounts, click on relevant email account, and then on the servers tab, change your outgoing mail server (SMTP) to your new ISP, eg. if you were on bigpond would look like "mail.bigpond.com"

once that is sorted you can send email, if you are unsure of what to put, reply with you ISP's name

Emails problems will not send out


it shouldn't have anything to do with the router, the ports for emails are automatically opened and allowed by windows, assuming you are using outlook or similair you should not have been able to send emails using another connection as you would have to change the smtp settings to send mail through the connection server, in this case if you have a internet security programme you may find it is checking outgoing mail for viruses and sometimes they get put in your outbox and never sent, if this is the cas dissable scan outgoing email in your security software. If you are sending mail through your online mailing web page eg. hotmail then there is a problem with the e mail you are sending perhaps too large a file or a file that requires you to zip it for security reasons.
