Re: Outgoing Email Not Being Delivered

Frequent Visitor

Re: Outgoing Email Not Being Delivered

I am having the exact same problem as of 2/25/13.  Incoming mail is being recieved but outgoing mail isn't being delivered.

 

OS: Windows 7.

Outlook 2003.

I use the latest version of Firefox.

Home use.

 

This is my question: when you say "port," port =SMTP, correct?  I see here, and other places, that port 25 needs to be changed to 587.  I went unde Properties and next to Outoing mail, changed the SMTP from 25 to 587 and the other number I found, I think it was 486.  Neither worked. 

 

Any other suggestions?  Same problem with my old laptop, which has Outlook 2003 and Vista (yea, I know, I need to upgrade.)

 

Thank you.
