Question about PC Desktops

The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test' Server: 'smtp.comcast.net' Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E Protocol: SMTP Port: 25 Secure(SSL): No Socket Error: 10060 I have been running Windows Live for almost a year with no problem. (Win XP SP2). For the last two days I have been unable to send email from any of the 8 accounts I have setup in Windows Live. I have disabled ZoneAlarm, disabled CA antivirus, and performed a system restore, to no avail. I believe my system was infected with spyware or virus but has since been removed. I can receive email just fine, but cannot send any email including from my ISP account (Comcast) or the other accounts all of which use domain names I own and use outgoing mail server settings independent of Comcast's SMTP settings.

    I am not concerned about the Comcast email account. I run a business from home and cannot send email using my own settings for my domain names.

    I have been using an IP address in my account settings, both SMTP and POP3 to send an receive email. Now all of a sudden I can no longer send email using my own domain name.


  • salsafresa Jul 20, 2008

    Yes, I just got off the phone with the Security Dept of Comcast and they told me they are blocking me from using port 25 regardless of if I am using my own domains to send email. Their answer was they detected unusual activity coming from my PC. LOL! I am a network engineer and a web developer, and I am confident there is nothing being sent out on my system that I don't know about.

    Read my friend before you speak. You are just trying to rack up brownie points rather then actually trying to figure out what is going on.

The port should be 587 for comncast outgoing mail and 110 for incoming mail according to this LINK Click on the "How do I setu or configure OE for emails" link on the right side

Have you loaded something recently that could have messed with your ports? Yahoo or Google tool bar or other similar app?

If it's changesd one acc settings it may have done so on all...

  • Dave Jul 20, 2008

    so does that make for a "fixya" ?

  • Dave Jul 21, 2008

    erm no, actually I thought you said that port 25 is blocked by ISP and the error is related to port 25 so I assume that is the issue? Are you trying to send email using port 25? If not please calrify the situation so I can try to assist further

What does this mean (The host 'smtp' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Subject 'happy thanksgiving', Account: 'pop2', Server:...


When you want to send mail, your mail agent (e.g. Outlook or Opera Mail or Firebird) tries to authenticate with an SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol) server so it can send the mail.

You need to fill in the actual server name, account, port, and password for your ISP's smtp server so you can send mail. You receive mail via a different protocol, commonly pop3.

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
Regards,

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 just got done setting up my windows mail and when i tried to send mail the error message reads..The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'hello', Account: 'Mail', Server: 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com',...


Since you have not signed up for Yahoo Mail Plus, they do not allow you to use another program to access your mail. They want you to use their WebMail Page so that they can serve you ads to pay for their service. They have an excellent Email Web Page, so it's a small price to pay.

But if you really need POP access and don't want to pay to get it, you could consider using Gmail. They allow POP access for free. Just setup a new Gmail account and go into the settings on the Gmail Webpage. From there, you can enable POP access. Be sure to write down the server information you will need to enter into your Email Program.

Good Luck with whatever choice you make!

I have been using windows live mail for several months for two email accounts. My hotmail account works fine but for my second westnet account (www.westnet.com.au) i am able to recieve email but unable to...


G'day,

All of the documentation on the westnet.com.au site shows that your "Outgoing mail server" should be set to "mail.westnet.com.au", not "mail.wn.com.au". Please check both of your accounts in Windows Live.

If this doesn't fix your proble, could you please repost the settings for your two accounts so that I can compare them?
