Email won't send - Windows Live Mail, Windows 7

First, I have gone through the instructions you guys have posted multiple times.  I have changed my smtp outgoing port to 587 and 465, and double checked all the other fields multiple times.  Still no luck.  I can rec'v but not send email.

 

I set up this new PC about a week ago, and it had been working fine with the ports at 587 and 995, but then stopped sending email this evening.  At this point, I am not sure why it will not send.  I have been at it for some time, and seems like it should be working, but it's not.  Is there something that I am missing for Windows 7?   It seems that most of the screen shots I saw were Vista, and the directions you had listed I followed to the T, many times.  Any thoughts?

 

Thanks.

Thanks!  So it was a microsoft update that caused that?  I hadn't changed any settings or anything for sometime?
