Outlook Express Send Mail Error

I have been using outlook express with my hotmail account for many years and pay the extra membership fee yearly. As of last night i have been getting the following error.......

i create an email and send the mail (even if its to my self) and the mail goes into my outbox. when i click send all i get the prgress bar and it gets to the end then says sending failed. The mail remains in my outbox. if i chek my inbox i have recieved the mail i just set which was ment to have failed. i ave been told by my family and friends that they have recieved the same email 10 times or more all sent 15 mins appart (which is my check mail setting)

why isn't the mail clearing the outbox once sent and how can i fix this??

This is happening on 2 computers running the same setup of outlook express 6 on XP service pack 3, on a vista system using outlook its fine and my iphone using mbox is also fine

I've had the same problem, and my way to fix it was to turn of the firewall and check if it worked, and it did.
When I was sure that the firewall was my problem, I gave accsess to Outlook Express manually through my firewall.
I can probably help you with that to, but then I have to know what firewall/anti virus program you use (if you got one at all?)

How do i go back from outlook express to the old hotmail


One of the benefits of using the Microsoft Outlook email client is that you can configure the software to work with more than one email account. Microsoft Outlook automatically sets one of your email accounts as the primary or "default" account, which is always checked first during the email send and receive process. The default account is usually the first email account that you set up in Outlook. You can change the default to your Hotmail account in Microsoft Outlook from the program's account settings menu.

Launch Microsoft Outlook on the computer. Click "File" followed by "Info" and then "Account Settings." Select the "Email" tab in "Account Settings." Read the list of email accounts and click on the Hotmail account that you wish to set as the default account. This is labeled with your Hotmail email address. Click the "Set As Default" link. Click "Close" to exit the account settings menu. Microsoft Outlook 2010 Email Account Settings [Setup]

You don't need Outlook Express to sent or receive your Email if since you already have an Email account like Hotmail or any other online free Email Accounts. You can sent or receive your Email through Hotmail account.

Outlook Express is already bundled with WinXp when the OS is installed to your PC/Laptop. Unless you want to download your Email to Outlook Express and you need to configure Outlook Express to receive Email from your Hotmail Account.

Outlook Express needs you to have an email account with your ISP, and your ISP should provide you with the setup items like Mail Servers. Once this isw done, you will have complete access to your email.

As an example, my ISP is Comcast and my mail servers are

mail.comcast.net to receive, and
smtp.comcast.net to send.

Your ISP will have their own servers, of course.

You will need to log in to these servers, using logins and passwords provided by your ISP. Outlook Express manages this as well.
