I have a new laptop with Windows Live Mail. Though the program receives mail without problems, I keep getting a sending email error. Configured the incoming and outgoing servers as per instructions from the ISP but Windows Live Mail refuses to send email. Messages keep lying in the Outbox and I have to delete them manually. I’ve tried everything the ISP support told me and it hasn’t worked.
There can be any number of reasons why you are getting a sending email error in Windows Live Mail (or other Microsoft email clients such as Outlook Express).
