Re: Having an email issue since 2.1 update... Help Please

According to this document (BELOW) , the SMTP server you are using is very slow and not recommended.  Also, I'm not familiar with Live mail but on my 2 pop accounts my user name is not my email address. Hope this helps.

POP Settings for Windows Live Mail

These settings will allow you to access your Windows Live Mail from most mail clients (Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc…) and some web mail services such as Gmail.  Unfortunately, these settings will not work with Yahoo! Mail or Hotmail.

Incoming Server Settings

POP Server:     pop3.live.com

Security:           This server requires a secure connection (SSL)

Port:                 Default  SSL Port 995

Outgoing Server Settings

There are 3 options for Outgoing Server Settings listed below in order of preference.

1. If you are configuring your mail client to access Windows Live Mail from on campus, use the following settings:

SMTP Server: smtp.uwp.edu

Security:           None

Port:                 25

2. If you are configuring your mail client to access Windows Live Mail from home, use the following settings:

SMTP Server: Enter the SMTP server of your Internet Service Provider. (E.g. smtp-server.wi.rr.com if you have Road Runner)

Security:           None (unless your ISP states otherwise)

Port:                 25

3. If you are configuring your mail client to access Windows Live Mail and want to use the Live Mail outgoing mail server, use the following settings. 

Note: This is not recommended as this server is very slow.

            SMTP Server: smtp.live.com

            Security:           This server requires a secure connection (TLS/SSL)

            Port:                 Default TLS/SSL Port 25
