Windows live mail error 554.... help im lost


Hi,

I run two email accounts through windows live mail. My hotmail account works fine but i am only able to recieve email from my second account, an email account through westnet. (www.westnet.com.au) When i attempt to reply to an email from this account i am faced with the following error message:

The message could not be sent. The authentication setting might not be correct for your outgoing e-mail [SMTP] server. For help solving this problem, go to Help, search for "Troubleshoot Windows Live Mail", and read the "I'm having problems sending e-mail" section. If you need help determining the proper server settings, please contact your e-mail service provider.

The rejected e-mail address was …..

Subject 'Read: '
Server Error: 554
Server Response: 554 <…. >: Recipient address rejected: Access denied
Server: 'mail.wn.com.au'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC79
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No

Please help, i have tried to following the windows troubleshooting guide but it never seems to work. I am not very good with technical problems.

Thanks.
Jessie

    Did this work before? Is Westnet.com an isp?



    Many isp's will block mail sending from their server unless you (customer) connect directly to them. It prevents their server being used as a spamming source.

SOURCE: I have been using windows

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?

SOURCE: 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,

I can't received my email using window 10 livemail, need help


No you haven't. :>)

LiveMail is now dead as they used a system called DeltaSynch.

You have to set up brand new accounts using a system called IMAP. Once your mail accounts with Hotmail or MSN are set up, your mail will load. Once you have it all, check the mail and folders in both accounts and then delete the original accounts.

Hotmail IMAP Settings To configure your Hotmail with an email client that supports IMAP and SMTP, you can use the following settings in your email app.
Incoming (IMAP) Server
  • Server address: imap-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 993
  • Encrypted Connection: SSL
Outgoing (SMTP) Server
  • Server address: smtp-mail.outlook.com
  • Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked)
  • Authentication: Yes
  • Encrypted Connection: TLS
User name: Your full Hotmail email address, including '@hotmail.com'.
Password: Your Hotmail account password
Normally you should set up your Hotmail account via IMAP protocol. Basically IMAP sync your Hotmail account among different devices and computers, not only the Inbox folder. Also any operation you performed one a device will be synced to the Hotmail server and other devices or mail clients connected to your Hotmail account. POP3 however simply download your emails from your Inbox folder offline. You can them manage emails on your local computer. However under some circumstances, you may also find POP3 mail actually works better than IMAP email. Check out more details here: What are POP3, IMAP and their pros and cons?

Close a Microsoft Email Account

Microsoft provides a free email account known as Windows Live Hotmail.
This service allows you to send and receive emails from friends, family and businesses.

Sometimes though, it is necessary to close your Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail account.
Maybe someone who is unauthorized has gained access to your email account or you simply do not need the account anymore.

Closing a Microsoft email account can be confusing for people who have never done it but it is simple when you know the steps.

Delete content from other Microsoft services such as Windows Live Messenger, XBox Live, Windows Live Spaces and Windows Live Skydrive.

Doing this will ensure that your entire Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail account will be fully closed and inaccessible.


Go to Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail's close-account page. This can be found at http://mail.live.com/mail/CloseAccountConfirmation.aspx.

You will be required to sign into your Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail account.

Click "close account" once sign-in is complete and follow the directions on the screen. Allow 365 days for your user name to be fully deleted within Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail's system.

Hotmail not receiving. Enable IMAP How?


Windows Live Mail is the desktop email application of Office Live, introduced with Windows 7. Windows Live Mail replaces Outlook Express in Windows XP and Windows Mail in Windows Vista. You can use Windows Live Mail to access most free email accounts, such as Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail, as well as those offered by Internet service providers. You can also set up your IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) account to use Windows Live Mail.

Open the Office Live email application. Click "Start," select "Programs" or "All Programs" and select "Windows Live Mail" from the "Windows Live Folder." Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Accounts" to open the "Accounts" dialog box. If you do not see thetoolbar, press the "Alt" key to display it. Click the "Add" button, select "Email Account" and click "Next." Type in the complete IMAP email address, such as "name@emailprovider.com" into the "Email Address." Enter the password for that account in the "Password" box. Enter the name you want displayed to email recipients in the "Display Name" box. Select the "Manually Configure Server Settings for Email" check box and click "Next." Select "IMAP" in the "My Incoming Mail Server Is" list. Enter "imap.ispname.com" into the "Incoming Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Type "smtp.ispname.com" into the "Outgoing Server" box, replacing "ispname" with the name of your email provider. Click "Next" and then click "Finish." Hope this helps.

Probable solutions to Hotmail email access problems

  • Verify the internet connection - Is it indeed working? Try loading other web sites like Yahoo.com.
  • Delete the temporary internet files / cache of the browser. You can do this through the tools and settings section.
  • Change the HTTP settings - please refer Hotmail sign in problem for details.
  • Use a different browser - I suggest downloading and installing Google Chrome.
  • Your account may be blocked. Hotmail suspects you may be using the account to send spam and hence disables access to it. Please contact the Hotmail support staff or wait for a day and check again.
  • If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, download and install Windows Live Mail email program - please refer that link for step by step instructions. You then need to set up your Hotmail account - for screenshots and walkthrough read Windows Live Mail settings for Hotmail accounts.
    This is a lengthy process, no doubts; but has many advantages. You maintain a copy of the emails on your local computer which protects against accidental online deletions and account hacking and you can access your emails even without an active internet connection.

The Microsoft Word Starter program was factory installed on the computer


This error occurs if

  • Windows Live Mail is set as the default mail client;
  • A Hotmail-type account (any account, including those on domains like hotmail.*, live.* and msn.com, that uses the Hotmail interface for webmail) is set as the default mail account;
  • That account is configured to use HTTP;
  • Windows Live Mail is not running when it is invoked by a sendmail or mailto command, like by clicking a link on a web page.


You can download an update to get it fixed. Get it from here: http://windows.microsoft.com/fil-PH/windows-live/essentials-other-programs


To work around the problem, ensure that Windows Live Mail is running before clicking a Contact us link or using the browser's or other application's Send by e-mail function.



I hope this helps!

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.
