Cannot send e-mail


Email Will Receive but Will Not Send b> According to the Radicati Group, a technology market research company, over 107 trillion emails were sent in 2010 -- that's roughly 294 billion emails a day. Moreover, the company estimates that there will be 3.8 billion email accounts by 2014. With so much activity, some users are sure to run into trouble when trying to send a message. If you are receiving emails but can't send them, it may be due to a number of issues, most of which you can quickly fix on your own.
SMTP Authentication b> Many email clients and providers require that your outgoing email messages are authenticated by an SMTP server prior to being sent. This authentication process adds an additional level of security and helps prevent junk mail from being sent out. If you have SMTP authentication disabled, however, your email will not be authenticated and will not be sent, even though you may still receive emails. To fix this issue, enable SMTP authentication by placing a checkmark next to the option in your email client or provider's Settings menu. b> Port 25 Blocking Port 25 is the port that is used to send email. Whenever you attempt to send an email, the email is routed through port 25 and the data is transmitted to remote email servers. If this port is blocked, you will be able to receive email but you will not be able to send it. Some Internet service providers block this port on their servers, so if you suspect that you are unable to send email because of port 25 blocking, contact your ISP and request that the port be unblocked. No Default Email Account b> If you do not have a default email account set up on your email client, and you haven't selected a specific account when composing the message, the client will not be able to deliver your email. A sent email must always be tied to an email account to protect other email users. To remedy this issue, specify a default account in the email client's Account Settings menu, or specify which account you want to send the email from when composing the message. b> Anti-Virus/Anti-Spam Scanner b> If you have an anti-virus or anti-spam scanner installed on your computer or as a plugin for your email client, it may be preventing your emails from being sent. This happens when the scanner times out while scanning an email for viruses or spam content, or when it detects what it believes to be a virus or spam while scanning the message. To remedy this issue, disable the anti-spam or anti-virus program, then send the message as normal.
Hope this helps.

I have just gotten a new computer and re-installed Office 2003. I have no trouble receiving my email, but when I try to send a message I get the error 0x800CCC78 and the comment that 530 authentication is...


You probably need to enable authentication for your SMTP server configuration.
I could copy and paste someone else's work into this solution, but that would be cheating. Be aware that you will not use the "mail.olympus.net" nor the "smtp.olympus.net" information in your configuration, because you need to use the information provided by your ISP.
Good luck

Outlook exspress up dated and I can not sent e-mails, i recieve ok


You will need to make sure that your SMTP settings are correct. If you're using a private email server or an ISP mail server, you will need the correct settings.

Also, in some cases the SMTP server will require user authentication.

I'm not 100% where to find this in Outlook Express, but in Outlook 2007 you go to Tools > Account Settings > Select your account > Click Change... and from there you should be able to see a few settings.

Look for a checkbox that says:

My outgoing (SMTP) server requires user authentication,

Click that checkbox if it's not already selected. Chose option #2:

Log on using:

Enter your username and password in the appropriate fields. Save your settings and then try.

Let me know if this helps at all.

Given the fact that you said you can receive messages but cannot send, I know 100% that it's an SMTP issue which is fixable.

Trying to download the Cox Security Suite software. Was told to delete any Macafee on my computer. I did. Clicked on "install Cox Security Suite. A message came up " McAfee Sucuirity cannot continue-...


McAfee's uninstall doesn't work. They know that, so they have a special removal tool that you download and run. The instructions are here: http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100507

Follow the directions carefully. If you think it's hard to remove McAfee, try Norton sometime.

Problem sending out e-mail, continously getting error message. I now have 38 messages holding in my outgoing box. All my addressees receive my messages twice when the do go out.2 to 4 days later.


hello babymae,

by the sounds of it its not that hard of a fix, I take it you are using outlook or similar
alot of the time people forget that you have to set the outgoing server manually this would cause the error you suggested above.

alot of the time it requires authentication

if you start up your outlook and then on the top menu goto tools from the tools menu you will then click on the account settings then double click on the email account that is having the issue.

A new window will now popup

then click on the outgoing server tab and then here is where we adjust your settings for you outgoing server setting

check the box next to "my outgoing server (smtp) requires authentication"
then check the login using and fill in your login info here now we can try this setting first to see if that helped or if we need to put a check mark in the box that says
"require secured password authentication"

also the outgoing server port number might not be correct as well if you have the correct information from your provider that should be put in here then it would be great
this is found in the advance tab

let me know how you made out and if its a different email client or you need more info im more then willing to help out and try and get this issue resolved for you so that you can get those emails sent.

My daughter is uaable to send and and receive mail using Windows Live Mail however you is able to send and receive on Outlook Express using the same settings. I get Error message 0x0x800CCC0F(Connection...


1. Dissable any firewall you may have running ( windows firewall , norton firewall , macafee firewall )


2. Attempt to email again using your outlook express.


3. If you no longer receive the error message turn the firewall back on and configure it to allow
exceptions.

4. Configure the firewall to allow outlook express to be able to connect to the internet under all circumstances.



You may need to consult your firewalls documentation to configure it correctly.
Or you may ask one of our Experts.

You will need to explain to them what firewall you actually have.


Thank you for choosing FixYa.
