I use Windows Mail in Windows 8.1 & it's started to tell me "There's a Problem Using Windows Mail Contact Your Supplier" whenever I try to send an email. I receive ok. Outlook.com, which has taken over from Hotmail, works fine. Can anyone help.

Check your smtp settings.

Not sure how I check the smtp setting in Windows 8.1 Mail Woolwell. I've had a look at settings in the Account within mail and it all seems to be set up ok.

Having tinkered around with the settings in Windows Mail it now seems to be working. All I did was to reset the signature to no signature and switch some of the other settings then back again. So not sure what I've done but at present it seems to be working. Thanks for you help.
