|It never got resolved, because I do not have a brain ;-)!|
I wound up deleting the message I was trying to send from the outbox, now I can use my email again. Charter determined that the issue is in the Live Mail program.
I tried to call the Windows Live people, but wouldn't you know they only work during the day, and I was doing this in the middle of the night. Those are just my hours as I work graveyard shift here in WA state.
I appreciate your efforts, but still need to get in touch with the Microsoft people when I'm awake and haven't been working all night. Thank you folks! Nice to know you are in my corner, when I figure out what the problem actually is, I know you will solve it.
