Windows live mail error 0x800CCC61

I tried sending an email link via Ebay and since then I cannot send any more mails from my Windows Live. I get the following error message....

An unknown error was returned from the SMTP server.

Subject 'Check out what I found on eBay!' Server Error: 564 Server Response: 564 : We were unable to deliver your message. Please try resending your message by adding some text. Server: '' Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC61 Protocol: SMTP Port: 465 Secure(SSL): Yes

When I close Windows live, another pop up appears saying that there are unsent emails in my outbox and do I want to send them now. Either option makes no difference. I have checked my outbox and it is empty.

Anyone help?

Try this- Go to your Windows Live Mail - Tools - Accounts - select your Account and press Properties. Then go to SERVERS tab and check MY SERVER REQUIRES AUTHENTICATION checkbox and press OK. Try sending now.

Thanks for replying. It was already checked, but I unchecked and checked it again. Unfortunately it didn't work :(
