Can't send email...Outlook can't connect to SMTP server
by bzitomer - 5/6/04 11:00 AM
I'm running XP, using Outlook 2003. McAfee's Personal
Firewall and VirusScan are installed. My ISP is Time
Warner's Road Runner service. I can receive email but get the following error when sending email:
Task 'pop-server.nyc.rr.com - Sending' reported error
(0x80042109) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your
outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
McAfee support says it's a problem with the ISP. The ISP says it's a problem with McAfee or MS.
The outgoing mail server is correctly set. I disabled
McAfee, but still get the error. I also created a new
profile, but that did not work either.
