sorry but skimy information does not help, for example what is your os? what is your i/net connection, has it ever worked?, if can you think of any occurrence or what were you doing at the time it stopped working?

you might be able to get a better informed answer if those details are provided.

apologies, i thought the error code in the title was enough.
until recentley there was no problem, now I try to send an email and i get the following error message
"sending reported error(0x80042109)outlook is unable to connect to your outgoing SMTP mail server" if you continue to recieve this message contact your server administrator or ISP."

this is occuring on two machines win2000 and xp.
the ISP is AOL and I have tried them for help but they are unhelpful.

the error code might have been enough if you had not already googled it, more info on the other points might enable help
