It is possible that the mail you sent just simply has not arrived to its location just yet. It is also possible that your email could have been filtered, or thrown in the spam folder for whatever reason.

Most of the time, if Outlook says it was sent, then it was more than likely sent, as it watches the connections to the servers... Now we just have to find it.

If you can, have the intended recipient of your email check the spam/junk mail folder. Also, if you are connecting to a webmail server such as Gmail through outlook, and you are (for example) sending your email to someone that is using Yahoo mail... Sometimes it may take a moment to go through all the way, though it should not take TOO long.

I hope that this has helped to solve your problem, good luck!

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").

How do I unsend aol email through firefox ?


Go to the Sent folder in AIM Mail or AOL Mail.
Make sure the box in front of the message you want to unsend is checked.
  • You can also check multiple messages to take them all back at once,
Click the Unsend button.
Click Unsend again.


Note that you can (effectively) unsend an email only if:

The message was sent to AOL recipients only.
You cannot take back an email if it also has been delivered to internet recipients, not even from AOL recipients.
You sent the message from AOL itself, not from an email client using IMAP and SMTP to access an AOL email account.
The message has not yet been read by any recipient.

Mails sent do not reach their destination. It appears in the Outlook sent as sent.


To check the exact reason - we have to follow few steps one by one as follows.

Due to following reasons mails may not reach their destinations,

Other End Problems
1. Email address typed is wrong or does not exist.
2. There is problem with the email address - like inbox capacity is full, incoming mail server is down.
3. Recipient received the email not in inbox rather in bulk/junk box - so tell him/her to check junk/bulk box.
4. Your email address is blocked by them (recipients).

Your End problem
-------------------------
5. You have not clicked the option "Server Authentication" or other configuration problem you made.
6. There is virus problem in your computer creating malfunction for outgoing emails.
7. Your outgoing server problem.

So I am guiding how to check all points one by one tactfully to detect exact reason.

First verify the email address you typed - then you send email to the same email address from your different email.
Try to use same mail server (your end) for checking as some time few black listed mail servers are there.
You request the recipient to check the bulk/junk box - or send email waiting few hours.
Tell the recipient whether your email is blocked or the domain of your email address (as yahoo.com is domain of email lina@yahoo.com).

Now this is the very important point out of the all points - please consult with your mail server admin and check whether you have checked the Server Authentication Required option in mail client software like Outlook Express.
You please configure the same email in different computer (virus free) - try the same.
Wait few ours and send to other email addresses - and check.

I think you may easily rectify the problem.
Happy Computing.
I think I have been able to answer to solve the problem. Many Many thanks for using Fixya.

Gmail account


The response you got was sent by Hotmail's server. Something in your message or something about your e-mail address caused Hotmail to reject the message. Unfortunately, there's no way to pin down exactly what the problem was.

There are a few things you can try, though. Try rewriting your message, maybe change some of the wording, etc., and send it again. If it doesn't go through, try sending from a different e-mail address. If that doesn't work either, then ask the recipient if they have a non-Hotmail address for you to try.
