Guest Dave Posted June 9, 2008 Share Posted June 9, 2008 Sony Vaio - running Windows XP home - until a few days ago running perfectly. After downloading a windows update the other day, it will no longer send mail (error message below) , everything else, including internet connection, and receiving mail, is fine. I've read a million and one things online about this, and how to cure it, but nothing has worked. I've even re-formatted, and re-installed windows (and nothing else) and it still happens !!!! I know it's not an ISP mail server issue (or mail sat on the server), as my desktop, and another pc are connecting without any problems. I've also got a mail server on my domain - exactly the same with that one. I've also tried it with 'dial up' (internal modem), and also with a mobile (cellphone) data card. I've ran 'dial-a-fix' and it has not picked up ANY errors. Error: The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'youraccount', Server: 'smtp.orange.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E Anyone experienced this ........... and any suggestions, advice, would be appreciated TIA Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
