Ok I have run into this issue several times and what you need to do is change your outgoing mail server to your ISP's outgoing server address instead of your email accounts outgoing server address
.
Like for example if you use hotmail or another third party email address other than the one your internet service provider gave you then all you need to do is change the outgoing server to match your internet service providers outgoing server address since the only thing outlook really needs a password for is your incoming mail server but for outgoing it sometimes does not. But can not get past the outgoing server of your ISP to send your mail so it gives you a can not connect to server error

But i understand this info can be a little bit of a hassle to find so if you want to give me the name of your internet provider and the area you live in then I can look up the outgoing server for you and give you more detailed instructions on how to configure outlook so that it will work

NOTE one little trick ive learned is to create two identical mail accounts in outlook with different outgoing mail servers so that when you are away from home and using the same computer you can just select the other account from the little drop down menu that will appear in the "from" box rather than having to reconfigure it every time.

OUTLOOK ERROR 550 5.7.1 Your email contained wrongly placed script tags. Please correct this (try setting your mail program to use plain text) and resend your message. PLZ REPLAY FAST


If you are receiving an error when sending email using Outlook:

"The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. Server Response: '550 not local host, not a gateway', Port: 25, Secure (SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79"


Open your Outlook settings (Tools > Accounts)
Go to View/Change email account for the email account you are having problems with.
Check that the SMTP Server is set to yourdomain.com
Go into the "More settings", "Outgoing Server" tab and make sure that the option "My server requires authentication" for the Outgoing server is checked ON.


Save and close all windows.

Try again.

If the problem continues then the problem is that your Internet Service Provider is blocking the mail server. ISPs do this to prevent spam on their network. When this happens you will need to use the mail server that they provide you instead of your own. The mail server is generally smtp.yourISPname.com, however, it could be different so please contact your ISP to get the details.

If you do not want to use your ISPs server for SMTP, and the ISP is blocking port 25, you can switch the port to 587 for your outgoing mail and use mail.yourdomain,com for the SMTP server name.

Unable tosend and forward emails


Assuming you can receive emails but not send, check your SMTP server settings. If you use a yahoo or other web-based account, check their website for the correct settings for "outgoing" or SMTP server. Enter that in whatever email software you're using (Outlook, Outlook Express), usually under Tools --> Email accounts.

The issue is: Unable to Send/Receive emails from winThe host 'POP3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'POP3', Protocol: POP3, Port:...


You are receiving this error because of one of two reasons:
1) Your email account is not set up properly. Click on Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools, then Accounts. You will see a window with columns stating Account-Type-Connection. If an account is set up then click on it then click on Properties. Click server tab and you will see the SMTP server block and the POP3 server block. Both of these fields will read as follows: pop.XXXXX.net and smtp.XXXXX.net. Your Internet Service Providers name will be in the XXXX. If these are not set up properly then you cannot connect to send email. If they are filled out correctly then you need to call your Internet Service Provider and inform them of your situation. Their server is not working properly.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.

I had been able to send emails, as of yesterday I have not been able to send out emails. says that my smtp is wrong


Some times the internet service providers do subtle changes and change which port the outgoing mail is on.

Contact your isp and see what smtp port e.g. Enter port number “465” in the “Outgoing Server (SMTP) for Yahoo mail

Setting up existing e-mail onto new pc.


wel smtp is your outgoing mail provider.

example.

email account kpn
internet account kpn

correct settings:
pop.kpn.nl
smtp.kpn.nl

email account kpn
internet acount xs4all.

this is the correct settings:

pop.kpn.nl with correct username and password
smtp.xs4all.nl

as you see you have to take the smtp address of your internet ADSL provider.

good luck.
