Windows live mail will not send email

I have been using windows live mail since installing windows 7...... it has worked fine until yesterday when it refused to send any emails and i have about 20 in the outbox waiting to go. it still receives email ok though. has anyone a solution to this? i have googled it and there are loads of references to the problem but no real answers... i am using thunderbird in the meantime but i quite like windows live mail and have set it up to download into different account folders......

I am only using windows firewall and mocrosoft defender apart from my orange live box firewall but live mail was working fine and i haven't changed anything.....

Hmmm...check for viruses first? Do you have AV software?

I am using AVAST antivirus and have been for years....
