Make sure the settings for the incoming mail server and port are correct. You can get that from your ISP

Why do my emails to others show windows live mail not my personal email address?


Really need more info than what you gave.
Your emails are sending through the Live mail server. Your personal email? is that from your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? Check the setting or options on your email client (program) it should have a reply to field you could set that as your personal email address. It is also possibly where the setting is that is sending through the live mail server.
You might need to set your ISP as the default. For example I use Thunderbird. It checks my ISP email and 3 Gmail addresses but when I send by default I send through one of my Gmail addresses but I can use a drop down box to select a different send server if I want to appear as coming from a different address.

I cannot retrieve my mails or send emails, what is it


do you have an internet connection ? what email program ?

Doing a little detective work can save you a lot of extra hassle. If you're having trouble sending email from clients like Outlook, Eudora and other POP3/IMAP software, please check the following issues:


Correct Passwords


Verify that all password information is correct.

We get many requests that simply turn out to be a password error.

When cutting and pasting be sure to watch out for extra spaces.

Mail Server (SMTP) is Offline


Your server could be running and serving both POP3/IMAP but not providing SMTP service. On many systems, the program responsible for POP3/IMAP is not the same as the one for

open an email click tools accounts mail then on the right select properties you should see your email adress then click on servers you will see


POP3 should have mail. with your provider ie: mail.bigpond.com
and outgoing mail the same mail.bigpond.com




SMTP. As a result, you may be able to check mail but not send.

Try restarting your server or email service from your control panel.

ISP Blocks


An increasing number of ISP's are blocking port 25, the port used to send email.

Many of the major ISP's, including NetZero, MSN, Earthlink, AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, block port 25 in an attempt to control spam. If your ISP blocks port 25, then you will be unable to send email out of your server.


This is not a server problem but a direct block by your ISP. We can often work around these blocks by configuring your mail server to listen to additional ports.


You can test if port 25 is blocked by using a telnet client to connect to port 25.

If you connect successfully to port 25, you will see your mail server's banner.


This will list some information about your mail server.

If you cannot connect to port 25, then either your mail server is down or your ISP has block port 25.



ISP blocks are becoming an increasing problem.

Generally, once password issues have been ruled out, sending email is all or none. If the mail server is down, no one will be able to send email.


ISP blocks will only impact those clients behind that ISP's network.

Server Load Throttling

Many SMTP servers will begin to reject email if server loads are too high.

If you have root access, you may want to login and run "uptime".


This will tell you your current load averages.

Many systems stop responding to email requests if loads exceed 12 for a five-minute period.


If the load does not decline to below 4 within a few minutes, then you may have a service performance issue.

SMTP Authentication



Most email servers use one of two mechanisms to determine if a user is permitted to send email.



The first method, "POP before SMTP", requires that the user first check their email before they can send.


If a user cannot check their email, then they will not be able to send.

Try restarting your POP3/IMAP server and testing again.

The second and preferred method is called SMTP Authentication.


This method should be used if your system supports it.

Current Ensim, Plesk and cPanel servers all support SMTP AUTH.


To use this feature, the user must check configure their email client to use authentication for sending mail. In Microsoft Outlook, there is a check box called "This server requires authentication."

That box should be checked.


hope this helps

Cannot send email but I can receive email. What is the problem? Yahoo email


Hello, ''Wanda'' sorry, for your problem. If you're able to receive but unable to send mail using your POP mail client (such as Outlook), please review the possible troubleareas below. SMTP Server In the fight against unsolicited commercial email (spam), some Internet service providers require their subscribers to send mail through the ISP's own SMTP servers. If you experience problems sending email, please contact your ISP to determine if it requires different SMTP server settings. Youwill need to use the ISP's SMTP server in place of Yahoo!'s SMTP server when configuring your POP mail client. The following is a partial list of ISPs that require you to use their SMTP servers. If your ISP is among them, try replacing the Yahoo! SMTP server with the ISP server in your POP mail client settings, or consult the ISP's help files. If your ISP does not appear in the list below, please contact your ISP directly for more information. Thanks

People call - they sent e-mail - i do not reeive them


Can you send mail ok? If your email is a webmail account, ie hotmail, google etc then there's nothing you can do about it except: Check the spam box to make sure they're not filtering in there. Do the same if you're using an independent email like outlook or eudora. Also check the ISP's spam filter if they have one.

If you're using Outlook, for instance, make sure the pop part of the configuration is set correctly. You would find out what it should be by contacting your ISP or looking on their website for instructions where it will be listed.

You could also have a firewall that is blocking the port that email uses (doesn't matter with a webmail account just with software like Outlook).

Can recieve e mails,cannot send or reply to in-comming mail.all messages come up as failed delivery.no problem when first connected


1. Change the settings in your email software so that the email account you're using designates an Outgoing Email Service that your internet service provider won't block. Your internet service provider should provide you with the address of an acceptable Outgoing SMTP Mail Server. This information is often listed on their website; if it isn't, call their technical support and ask them the address of their Outgoing Email Server. Then go into your email software and change your current Outgoing SMTP Address to the one your ISP requires.
2. After you designate a SMTP address not restricted by your ISP, you may still receive the following error:
Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 530, Error Number: 0x800CCC78
Now you are reaching the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server, but it won't process your request without further authorization. You will need to go into your Email Software and find the setting that indicates that your Outgoing SMTP requires further authorization. Select this setting and enter the username and password required by your ISP (or reqired by who ever is the administrator of the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server that's not blocked by your ISP). For example, at the time this article was written MSN Internet Service's SMTP Address was: (secure.smtp.email.msn.com). However, this email server won't allow you to use it unless you send your MSN username and password along with your request to send email.

I am on a lap top so how do i get through on a lap top


any time you are on anypage and it has a link to email them OR somebody, internet explorer (IE), will open your default mail program and ask you to fill out the email message BUT, you have not setup THAT email program (in XP it is most likely Outlook express, in Vista it is Windowsmail). SO if it is not set up right with all the info that your (ISP, (insternet service provider), like incoming mail server and the outgoing mail server, and the user name and pasword), the program will have no idea how to send that new email message that you triggered when clicking on the craigs list link). to find out which program is by default is trying to open up, while you are in IE, ( if that is in windows XP), click tools/internet options/prgrams and you will see it in front of email program., if you have VISTA, then click --> tools/internet options/prgrams/set programs/set default programs/then click on Windows mail and set it up as your Default prgram for email sending and receiving. ) but you need to make sure you get all the info from you ISP first, it a matter of fact they might be able to help set it up for you (depends on your ISP of course).
good luck

Using thunderbird mail program on lap top. can receive e-mail, but can not send e-mail on any public wi-fi connection. error message says can not connect to mail server on port 25.


most isp blocks port 25 for sending out mail that's the reason you cant send out mail, ask you wifi(ISP) smtp settings and you need to set it on your smtp server so you can send out mail using thier smtp as outgoing server.

OR ask you email provider about your webmail address and manually send out mail using the web interface of your email hosting.

btw have you try to change you smtp port to 587 sometimes it work.

Outlook express6


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
