I have just set up Outlook 2007 to run via my mail server and although I seem to receive emails into outlook I do not seem to be able to send from outlook

    Thanks for your help, It was the SMTP port that was playing up, I had changed it to match our server but when I clicked on "server requires an encrypted connection(SSL)" it was reverting to the default setting. I overcame this by selecting the SSL before changing the SMTP port and it seemed to remember the correct port.



    Once again thanks for your help

Go to Tools->account settings and check they are all correct. Double click on your account (in account settings), then click on 'more Settings', On the outgoing server tab it check whether 'My outgoing server requires authentication' is ticked (some servers need this ticked others don't so try changing it. Also on the Advanced Tab, check the SMTP port, it's usually 25 but depending on your mail server may be something else.

Retrieve a fail to send email from a web page?


Probably not. The email could have failed or numerous reasons. I always CTRL+A and CTRL+C before I post or submit any form online because things don't always work as planned and you have no control over someone else's site.

You could have been clicking on a mailto link and didn't have a default email client set. This would give you a MAPI error.

It could be that Outlook Express was setup as your default mail client but it's not setup to use, so it couldn't open the default folders and your email failed for this reason.

If you use an application on your desktop, then set it to be the default email client. If not, and you only use web-based email, then copy/paste to your email client instead of clicking submit.

Websites should send server-based email and these issues would be eliminated. Also, using mailto, allows spammers to harvest email addresses on websites. Although it can be written to make it difficult, most people don't make the effort.

How do i get email without going onto microsoft outlook?


Microsoft Outlook is just the program to retrieve your e-mail from an e-mail server (via POP(3) or IMAP) or send e-mail (via SMTP). As long as the program you use is configured to access your e-mail server you can use any e-mail client you like (e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook, GNUMail, etc.) BUt you have to use an e-mail client to access your e-mail.
Here's a link to some e-mail client comparisons (click here).

Server Error 553, ErrorNumber 0x800CCC78


(Outlook Express) Email is not configured to relay mail to address
Try this settings:

Outlook Express
  1. Click Tools then Accounts
  2. Click Mail
  3. Click Properties
  4. Click Servers
  5. In the Account Name field, it should be the first part of your email address (probably it's like this already).
  6. Put a checkmark by My Server Requires Authentication at the bottom of the page.
  7. Click Settings
  8. Select Log on Using
    • Type Account Name (which will be your full email address)
    • Type Password (which will be your email address password)
  9. Click Apply
  10. Click OK
  11. Click Close
This should fix the Outlook Express to send email, close Outlook Express and re-open it to start sending mail.

Microsoft Outlook
  1. Click Tools then Email Accounts (Accounts and Services on older versions of Outlook)
  2. Click View and Change and Click Next (skip if it opens up to the account screen)
  3. Click Change or Properties of your Email Account
  4. Click More Settings
  5. Click Outgoing Server
  6. Check My Server Uses Authentication
  7. Select Log on Using
    • Type Account Name (which will be your full email address)
    • Type Password (which will be your email address password)
  8. Click OK
  9. Click Next
  10. Click Finish

This should fix the Outlook to send email. Close Outlook and re-open it to start sending mail.

I cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

Outlook exspress up dated and I can not sent e-mails, i recieve ok


You will need to make sure that your SMTP settings are correct. If you're using a private email server or an ISP mail server, you will need the correct settings.

Also, in some cases the SMTP server will require user authentication.

I'm not 100% where to find this in Outlook Express, but in Outlook 2007 you go to Tools > Account Settings > Select your account > Click Change... and from there you should be able to see a few settings.

Look for a checkbox that says:

My outgoing (SMTP) server requires user authentication,

Click that checkbox if it's not already selected. Chose option #2:

Log on using:

Enter your username and password in the appropriate fields. Save your settings and then try.

Let me know if this helps at all.

Given the fact that you said you can receive messages but cannot send, I know 100% that it's an SMTP issue which is fixable.
