My main email is broken. I use this for my personal work and absolutely need to fix the problem ASAP. It can receive but cannot send email.
My Outlook 2007 is set up to handle email from two different email providers, MSN and another. It's been working just fine for years. It connects to both and can receive but fails on sending to both. I've seen a variety of error messages come back, none of which have been particularly useful. Here's an example:
Task '<me at msn.com> - Sending' reported error (0x80042109) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
The operating system is XP with all the latest patches and such. I've Googled and gone through the results. I've disabled my NAV and since we're talking about two different ISPs, we can discount anything related to 'talk to your ISP and see why they've shut you off'.
The one clue that I haven't been able to find anything about so far is a message box that showed up yesterday saying to the effect that an application certificate was valid but unverifiable and did I want to let it use my internet connection. I was at work and did not pay much attention to it other than to notice that the last part of the certificate name was '.ca'. I don't know the significance of this, if any. Anyway, I reacted by disallowing it and today my email doesn't work. Could there be a connection? If so, how do I re-enable the access and thus reallowing sending of email?
