whats the error message
who provides the mail service
check the smtp server is setup correctly

if you have an ISP email and are using it on a different connection , often the send will not work

The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's email address. The sender's email address was. And it gives the email address I am useing.

This is the error I get each time I try to send email with live mail.

I'm not sure how to check for the correct settings. I would like two different email addresses one on the web and one on live mail The live mail address will not let me send mail.

personalise support and select windows 7 and windows live mail - this link should come up with those options anyway

My OPS is windows 7 and use Yahoo mail I receive mail sent to my web mail in live mail but no matter what I type in as a server in the smtp or pop3 when I send mail I get an error saying the server can not be connected or found I read your help to coco8136 and I tried port 587 I also read that many times port 26 is used because the spammers use 25 I am at a loss on what to try next. Thanks for any help you can give. Is there a way to find what server to type in the server boxes? I was hoping to keep the two mail accounts separate

the link i gave should have the server names you need to type in - also you need to tick the requires authentication box on the SMTP setups

Incoming (POP) inbound.att.net
Outgoing server (SMTP) outbound.att.net

No luck I will look for thowse servers when I have a little extra time the outbound.att.net did not work. Server could not be found.The notes I send to my wifes box show up in my live male inbox and the inbound mail from the web is failing also. I hope i can find the servers on the link you gave me. Thank you for your help. I will keep trying.

This is the error message I am getting now. I have tried changing the security port numbers several times per windows instruction. I have install the servers you suggested and can not find any other ones to try. Is there any hope for this problem?

Subject 'mail'
Server: 'outbound.att.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0D

i would check with your ISP - email supplier and check with them the correct settings for your email account - they should have a guide on the site available

dont just keep using trail and error - obtain the exact settings - and then once they tell you the settings and auth and ports to use if it still does not work we can try and help further
