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?)

Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Express Password is a tool that recovers forgotten or lost passwords for Outlook Express mail and news accounts. The program also recovers passwords for the identities of the Outlook Express mail client. Besides, Recovery Toolbox for Outlook Express Password visualizes the settings of mail and news accounts.
Open Microsoft Outlook and from the "Tools" menu select "Email Accounts." The email account wizard will pop up.
Choose "Add a new email account" from the list of options and click the "Next" button. Then, select "HTTP" and hit "Next" again. Now you are ready to input information about your Hotmail account.
Select "Hotmail" from the drop down menu at the right. Enter the name that you want to associate with this account in the "Your Name" field. This is the name that appears when you send someone an email from Outlook.
Input your Hotmail email address in the "Email Address" field. Your user name will automatically be filled in when you do this.
Provide the password to your Hotmail account in the "Password" field. Put a check mark in the check box below if you would like for Outlook to remember your password. This will save you from having to enter your password every time you download your Hotmail email with Outlook.
Hit the "Finish" button to complete the setup of your Hotmail account. Now, when you select "Send and Receive" Outlook will synchronize with Outlook. Too see your Hotmail email, select "Inbox in Hotmail" from your list of mail folders.
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.
If Outlook Express is your "preferred Email", when you email a scanned image, it is sent by Outlook Express. The sender's name displayed is the user listed in the Outlook Express (whose User name is used to get into the Outlook Exp). If anyone else want to send it in their name: This is what you have to do: Save the scanned image somewhere in the computer. Goto your Yahoo mail, or Hotmail or Google mail (create a free account if you don't have your own email account) and send the scan as an attachment. Hope this will work for you. luciana44
Sounds like it's self explanatory. Perhaps Hotmail is no longer free for Outlook Express. If you would like to use Outlook Express as your defautl email client and use a POP3 based email account, may I refer you to www.hotpop.com? You can apply for a free POP3 email account which you can set up to run with your Outlook Express. You may also want to check into www.gmail.com. They support web based inboxes as well as POP3 configuration for your Outlook Express.
if you are trying to send an email from an old isp mail account, using a different isp email connection; you have to change the mail.smtp settings, for the settings you will need to refer to your isp.
If you are trying to send an email using a hotmail account, this can no longer be done as hotmail no longer allow the use of outlook express with their accounts
