|I had Outlook XP for months with no problem. However, about two weeks ago I could not send any e-mails out. I first disabled both my firewall and my anti-virus protection, but when that didn't work, I uninstalled both of them, tried sending an e-mail, still did not work.|
I have three different e-mail addresses from three different ISPs. However, the error message is the same for all of them:
The SMTP server responded with an error. (Account: 'name', SMTP Server: "server name', Error Number 0x800ccc60)
I uninstalled and re-installed Outlook XP to no avail. Then I downgraded to Outlook 2000, and it managed to send out two e-mails, and then failed a few hours later with the same errors. I uninstalled Outlook 2000 and reinstalled it, but this time it did not send any.
I do not understand how this could be possible. Obviously Outlook is connecting to my ISPs' servers because Outlook is receiving e-mail, but for some reason it cannot send any e-mail out, from any of the three ISPs.
I have not found anything to help me on this from Microsoft or anywhere else on the internet. Any help is greatly appreciated!
