On my laptop I am using Vista OS and my default email client is Windows Mail.
Until 11/27/10 I was able to respond to web sites that used the "mailto" function. Now my emails are rejected with the following message:
"The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Sent from Snipping Tool', Account: 'incoming.yahoo.verizon.net', Server: 'outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"
First of all I don't understand why the outgoing account should be "incoming.yahoo.verizon.net", but then it always worked prior to November, and I can't find any reference on the Verizon email site as to what to use.
do normal sends and replies work w/in windows mail?
if so, then its some sort of issue/setting on the PC/windows mail...
the name of the account is just that... the name of your account in windows mail is "incoming.yahoo.verizon.net" that fact has no real bearing on the situation....
what are the full details of the error message that you get?
I don't use Winmail, but I just sent an email to myself and got ----
The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Sent from Snipping Tool', Account: 'incoming.yahoo.verizon.net', Server: 'outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
#1 Try changing the port to 587.
#2 If that does not work, go back to port 25 and try non SSL.
#3 If that does not work, try using port 587 without SSL.
#4 If that does not work, please post.
