    Hi there. I have tried to configure Windows Live mail for Gmail. The program is successfully receiving mail but not sending. The error message I am getting is:

    The connection to the server has failed.

    Subject 'test'
    Server: 'smtp.gmail.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
    Protocol: SMTP
    Port: 25
    Secure(SSL): Yes
    Socket Error: 10061

    Can anybody help?

    Hi if you are ssl with smtp your port number of 25 is not correct. Set this to port 465 or 587
    :)

    Are you trying to use POP or IMAP access? Did you enable this in the settings for your GMail account? Did you read the Help information GMail provides for configuring an e-mail client? It's very detailed.
