Unable tosend and forward emails


Assuming you can receive emails but not send, check your SMTP server settings. If you use a yahoo or other web-based account, check their website for the correct settings for "outgoing" or SMTP server. Enter that in whatever email software you're using (Outlook, Outlook Express), usually under Tools --> Email accounts.

Outlook express


0x800CCC78 SMTP_REJECTED_SENDER Unknown sender. This is caused by having the incorrect e-mail address in the Reply-To field.

You may have to authenticate in outlook express by putting in the SMTP server name of your internet provider instead of yahoo
for example
Incoming = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing = smtp.yourISPservername
Some isp's will not let you send out with a different smtp server than theirs.
It's why you can receive but not send.

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'a.tia62@yahoo.com'. Subject 'testing', Account: 'mail.eastern.com.ph', Server:...


Greetings,
this is a server rejected recipient error message for Outlook/ outlook express. mainly if this is a correct email address that you were trying to send the email on then you need to check for the configuration settings for Outlook express.
Goto Outlook express- higlight mail tab- select the user a/c- click properties on right- goto server tab check that server is
incoming: pop3.eastern.com.ph
outgoing: smtp.eastern.com.ph
click save

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.

The issue is: Unable to Send/Receive emails from winThe host 'POP3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'POP3', Protocol: POP3, Port:...


You are receiving this error because of one of two reasons:
1) Your email account is not set up properly. Click on Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools, then Accounts. You will see a window with columns stating Account-Type-Connection. If an account is set up then click on it then click on Properties. Click server tab and you will see the SMTP server block and the POP3 server block. Both of these fields will read as follows: pop.XXXXX.net and smtp.XXXXX.net. Your Internet Service Providers name will be in the XXXX. If these are not set up properly then you cannot connect to send email. If they are filled out correctly then you need to call your Internet Service Provider and inform them of your situation. Their server is not working properly.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.

I use Outlook Express for Emailing, i would like to change my present email address please can you help me to do this? Regards Clive.


Outlook Express is just a software which can send and recieve emails from any email account configured on it(Outlook Express). regardless of yahoo, gmail, comcast.net ,aol.com etc.

So if you want to change your email address and want to use it on outlook express, you need to first create an email account by going to the website on which you want to create an email address.

Once you have created the email address we can look for the POP/SMTP server settings of that particular email account on the internet .
Once we have those(POP/SMTP) addresses we can configure Outlook Express to send and recieve emails for your new email account.
