    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

    Try using your ISP's SMTP mail server. It should be something like smtp.yourisp.com.
