    I recently moved to a new location and have my PC setup through an ethernet connection which is working fine. However, I seem to have a major problem with my email through "Windows Live Mail".

    I'm connected to the internet, and I *believe* i'm connected to windows live, but once I'm connected it tries to receive my emails and it won't receive them. The first time I connected I received two emails but I know for a fact I have more than just two new emails. When I attempt to send an email I get an error that reads:

    The connection to the server has failed.

    subject: "
    Server: 'outgoing.verizon.net'
    Windows live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
    Protocol: SMTP
    Port: 25
    Secure (SSL): No
    Socket Error: 10013

    Any helps appreciated

    This Verizon support article says to use port 465.

    You are using Hotmail, but using Verizon's outgoing server, right? Is Verizon your ISP?

    Sorry for the double post.

    I solved the issue by changing the SMTP to 587 even though Comcast isn't my ISP, Qwest is. Odd? Not sure..
