    I am tearing my hair out trying to resolve this problem. I cannot send out emails via my SMTP server. It returns the following messages:-

    1. When outgoing I setup authentication :-

    "Send test e-mail message: None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server."

    2. When I disable authentication:-

    "Send test e-mail message: The server responded: 550 Error: Message conten"


    Before I upgraded from Outlook 2003 everything worked in the option 1 and everything was unchanged in the settings in Outlook 2007.

    Looking for ideas :confused:

    Thanks for info.

    Tried all these with no avail.

    But got another error message:-
    " Task 'SHEMARA Mailbox - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC80) : 'None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server."

    Regards

    Bill

    Please detail all of your account settings (minus username/password) and the type of account you are using.

    When you go to Tools | Account settings, click your account, click Change and then click More Settings, what are your settings?

    Have you simply contacted whoever is hosting your e-mail to find out what the SMTP server settings should be. It sounds like you are guessing if there should be authentication or no.

    I have re-installed Outlook 2003 using the same settings and everything works OK so the answer lies with the way Outlook 2007 sends SMTP. I set up another system in parallel and the problem returns.

    Thanks to everyone who sent me suggestions which I have tried but none corrected the problem. This is a problem to put on the back burner and hope a solution materializes.

    Thanks Again

    If you post your details we may be able to try and replicate the issue, which would be good to know if it was a bug. :)
