Using Tbird Ver 17. When sending it states "SMTP server smtp.live timed out"
Outgoing Server settings are:
Server Name; smtp.live.com
Auth Method; Normal Password
Connection Security; SSL/TLS
I know 25 o/going works in Out Express so have set that in Tbird but still doesn't work. Also tried 995, no good.
When was this written? Still no good. Can only set Security to SSL/TLS or STARTTLS or None.
I have this set up for POP and it works fine - Server name is pop3.live.com.
How to set up your Hotmail account on Thunderbird
outgoing should be port 587 server: smtp.live.com
Thanks all for efforts BUT still no b....y good!
I get "The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server smtp.live.com timed out".
Server is set to smtp.live.com, Port is 587, Connection Security is SSL/TLS.
Any further suggestions? Clean ones!
Have you tried clearing the set-up completely, re-starting pc and starting all over again.
Port 25 should work but if not 587 - is your anti virus set to scan outgoing e-mails.
Thanks Difarn but done all that. Shut down MS Sec Essentials and tried both ports. Sure it's something stupid but at the mo cant crack it.
mine has security set to SSL (both for in and out) and has 'Server requires Authentication' ticked.
I can only set security to either SSl/TLS, None or Starttls, NOT SSL alone. Where is the option 'Server requires Authentication' to tick?
Hang on, think I've cracked it. Tried with STARTTLS and it's sent. What the 'ell is STARTTLS and why has no one else mentioned using it?
