Yahoo does require that you purchase an upgrade option in order to be able to send and receive emails via an email client such as Windows Mail.

If you already knew this and are subscribing, see this site for details on the server settings: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html

Xerox WC 3220 scan to e-mail problem with external smtp server(ISP). I am trying to configure the scanner to send mail. I follow up the instructions in the manual. When I try to test it I got smtp error ...


You can always find answers to your Xerox questions at www.xerox.com/support .

The 3220 does NOT support SSL, please verify if your email service is requiring SSL transmission. (Port 445 or 587 are indicators of SSL email requirements.) There are free email providers that will still send on port 25 without SSL. Xerox does not provide a list however so you will need to research these yourself.

Instructions for setup scan to email below:
Configure the Machine for Scan to E-mail
IMPORTANT: Obtain the following information from your e-mail service provider before configuring the machine for Scan to E-Mail.
  1. What is the host name or IP address of the SMTP server?
  2. What port number does that SMTP server require?
  3. Does the server require authentication login? If so, what format does the server expect the login? (Does the server require the full e-mail address or just the part before the @ sign?)
  4. Does the e-mail server require POP3 before SMTP authentication? If so, obtain the POP3 settings (POP3 host name or IP address, port number, and login name/password).
  5. Does the server require SSL or TLS encryption? If so, ask your e-mail provider to provide you with an e-mail server that does not use SSL or TLS encryption as the printer does not support SSL/TLS encryption for e-mail authentication.

    NOTES:
    • If you are provided with a new e-mail server to use, questions 1 - 7 will need to be answered again.
    • Xerox does not provide a list of e-mail providers that do not require SSL/TLS encryption for e-mail authentication.
    • If unable to find an e-mail service that does not require SSL or TLS encryption, See theRelated Items below for information on how to Install the Network Scan program for a Windows OS or how to Install the USB Scan Driver for a Macintosh OS. Once the scanned file is stored on your computer, it can then be e-mailed from your computer as an attached item/file in a new e-mail.
  6. What is the attachment size limit on the account on that server?
  7. What 'From' address will the printer use for Scan to E-mail? The From address should be a valid e-mail address for the e-mail server that the printer will use. Ask the e-mail provider if authentication is required if the login name (above) is allowed to be used for the From address the printer will use.

    If you do not know the answer to the questions above, contact the people that control the e-mail server you want the machine to use for Scan to E-mail. The following parties can provide you with additional assistance:
    • If the e-mail server is inside your company's network, contact the E-mail Server Administrator to obtain the required settings.
    • If the e-mail server is outside your company, contact the Technical Support for that e-mail service to obtain the required settings. This may be your Internet Service Provider (ISP), or a 3rd party E-mail Service Provider.
Configure the Machine's E-mail Settings Using CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS)
After you have obtained the above information, configure the machine's e-mail settings using CWIS.
  1. Access CWIS. See the Related Items below for additional information.
  2. Click on the [Properties] link.
  3. In the Properties section on the left side of the window, click on the [+] symbol next to theProtocols folder to expand the list of options.
  4. Click on the [SMTP Server] link.
  5. Click on the [IP Address] or [Host Name] radio button.
  6. Enter the IP address or domain (host) name of the SMTP (e-mail) server in the field provided.

    NOTE: If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change. If the SMTP's server IP address changes, the machine will be unable to Scan to E-mail until the machine's SMTP Server address entry is edited with the new SMTP server IP address. If necessary, contact your E-mail Administrator to verify how the IP address has been assigned to the SMTP server.

    NOTE: If using the domain (host) name, make sure DNS is enabled on the machine. By default, DNS is disabled. To enable and configure DNS settings, click on the Properties tab, click on the TCP/IP link under the Protocols folder, enter the required DNS settings for your network in the DNS/DDNS field, and then click on [Save Changes]. Contact your Network Administrator to obtain the correct DNS settings.
  7. Enter the port number used by the e-mail server, from 1 to 65535, in the field provided. The default port number is 25. If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change.

    NOTE: If you use an IP address for the SMTP server, verify that the IP address for the server will not change. If the SMTP's server IP address changes, the machine will be unable to Scan to E-mail until the machine's SMTP Server address entry is edited with the new SMTP server IP address. If necessary, contact your E-mail Administrator to verify how the IP address has been assigned to the SMTP server.
  8. If authentication is required, insert a check mark in the SMTP Requires Authentication check box.
  9. In the SMTP Server Login Name field, enter the SMTP login name.
  10. In the SMTP Server Password field, enter the SMTP password and then retype the same password in the Verify Password field.

I keep getting the following when opening or sending mail: The message could not be sent. The setting for your outgoing email [SMTP] server might need to be configured. To find the server settings for...


Quick summary:
It appears that email address does not exist - which is why your email program was unable to send the message. There may be a small typographical error in the address - which you would need to correct in order to send the message successfully.

Background:
The error message you received says the "domain does not resolve". That means your outgoing server (which is used for sending messages) couldn't find the information about the recipient's address -- and more specifically, the "domain" of the recipient's address. (That's the portion of an email address following the "@" sign.)

The error message indicates the domain of the recipient's address is "quickfireprocuctions.com". But a quick check of domain registration records indicates there is no registered domain by that name. And if a domain is not registered, there can't be any websites or email addresses which use that domain name.

However, there is a properly registered domain "quickfireproductions.com" (with a "d" rather than a "c"). That seems much more likely - as the combination of recognizable words ("quick" "fire" "productions"). That domain is registered to owners in Florida, USA. See details at: http://whois.domaintools.com/quickfireproductions.com

Solution:
If that registered domain name sounds right, then you should revise the email address in your message to use the correct domain name (i.e., replacing the "c" with a "d").

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.

Tried to send e-mail error host SMTP could not be found error code ox8oocccod do not understand what that means


It sounds as though you're using Outlook to send email to and from and ISP and not to or from a Microsoft Exchange server. If so, then the following applies.

The error message means that there is a configuration problem with your email account settings. This error usually happens when an error has been made when specifiy the name of the outgoing (SMTP) mail server.

Note: It may be necessary to contact your ISP to obtain their specific mail server information. The standard port number for Incoming mail (POP3) is 110. The standard port number for Outgoing mail (SMTP) is 25.

Here's what you need to do to verify your settings:

1. Contact your ISP to obtain their specific mail server settings.
2. Open Outlook
3. Click on the "Tools" menu item then click on "Account Settings".
4. Make sure you are on the "Email tab" of the account setting dialog box.
5. Double click on the email account that is listed under "Name".
6. The Internet Email Settings dialog box will appear.
7. Look for the heading "Sever Information". Below that heading you will see Incoming and Outgoing Mail Server . Verify the names of your mail servers match the information given to you by your ISP.
8. If your ISP have provided you with port numbers other than those listed in the note above, perform steps 9 to 12. Otherwise proceed to step 13.
9. From the Internet Email Settings dialog box, click on the "More Settings" button.
10. Click on the "Advanced" tab.
11. Change the Incoming and Outgoing mail server ports to match the information provided by your ISP.
12. Click the OK button to save the changes.
13. Click on the "Next" button.
14. Click on the "Finish" button.
15. Click on the "Close" button to colse the account settings.

Outlook will now be configured properly to send and receive Internet Email.

Email set up problems


from the data you have given, me, it sounds like you are using Either Outlook, or the bundled Windows Mail service.  
What is happening, is that an email your program is trying to send, an email with "test" in the subject line, but is unable to because it cannot connect to the server. looking at the string, I see several problems. make sure your settings are configured a mentioned below: 
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
  • Email Address: your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g., user@yahoo.com)
If this doesn't resolve your problem, refer to this page for more information. (Note: if you do not subscribe and pay in to a "Yahoo Plus" plan, this could also pose a problem, as Yahoo does not allow you to use third-party email programs with their "free" service, as they like to restrict it to webmail only. If you want a free email service that *does* however, I strongly suggest you check out google's Gmail service [what I use])

Can't send e-mails as send button isn't working.


Mail Program? Outlook Express? Mozilla Thunderbird? Operating System? Some more information would be a key to get a proper answer. Just a guess without any other data. Try to see if it is properly configured the required data for mail servers, name, mail address, and so on. Sometimes if something is not well configured, it simply does not let you send any mail. Good luck.

The default name server due to interaction with the router?s NAT firewall feature cannot resolve simple names such as ?mail?. There is a workaround for this: First, verify that the mail client is set up with simple server names. To view the server names entered into Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". If these are simple names like "Mail" and not something like "pop.myisp.mail.com" then use this work around. Second, make sure that the TCP/IP settings are configured to obtain an IP address automatically. In Windows 2000 also make sure that the TCP/IP settings are also configured for Obtain DNS server address automatically. Replace the mail server names with the mail server IP addresses. There are a couple ways this information can be obtained. Contacting the ISP and asking is one possible way. The other way is to reconnect the original computer to the modem. Make sure the computer is restarted or that the IP configuration is released and renewed and that the computer has obtained an IP address from the ISP. Open a "COMMAND" window by typing "CMD" in the run dialog box located in the "Start" menu. At the command prompt, type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the incoming mail server. The ISP server will return an IP address for the mail server. Record this address. Do the same for the outgoing mail server (if different): type "PING MAIL" where "mail" is the simple name of the outgoing mail server. Open the mail client (Outlook Express, etc.). For Outlook Express, click on "Tools", "Accounts". Highlight the mail account and click on "Properties". Click on the "Servers" tab. Under "Server Information", there are two fields called "Incoming mail" and "Outgoing mail". Enter the incoming and outgoing mail server IP addresses into these fields. Click "Apply". Close the window and test the mail by sending an e-mail to the mailbox. (Send an E-mail to yourself. This will test the incoming and outgoing mail all at once)
