Having a weird problem with outlook not sending and receiving pop3 emails. All machines in the school are doing the same problem!! My county webmail works so i know that the county mail server is ok and i can recieve emails on my iphone.
I am using outlook 2007 on xp. Using smoothwall for all filtering, could it be a setting on this blocking emails from sending? internet is working fine. The problem started yesterday about lunch time but didnt have a chance to have a look yesterday as it was open evening and everyone wanted stupid things setup!!
Ive plugged my machine directly into the county switch in the server room to bypass my smoothwall server and my emails now work.
I also have a second smoothwall express server that i use as well for my 'technicians' filter from county and have tried going through that as well.
Error is :
Task 'SMTP server name - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x80042109): 'Outlook is unable to connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact the server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
