    I haven't seen an answer that works for me yet. I know the problem started
    after service pack one was installed in vista.
    Subject 'test', Account: '', Server:
    '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error
    Number: 0x800CCC15

    I have a Trend Micro PC-cillin antiv-rus that has run out (well before the
    SP1 upgrade), and I'm unable to unistall it. That may be the problem. New
    to Vista, but wonder if there is a safe mode I can uninstall it from?

    Any ideas?

  3. Open the Default Programs applet, which you can access either from
    the Start menu or via the Control Panel, then click the first item:
    "Set your default programs."
    After a few seconds, a list of programs comes up. Click on "Windows
    Mail". If it doesn't respond with "This program has all its defaults"
    then fix it by clicking on the option indicated by the first green arrow.

  4. Trend Micro antivirus could well be the cause of your problem.
    Contact Trend Micro tech support and ask for uninstall help.

    Thanks Frank,

    I did that and it responded that it was sucessful, but after restarting I'm
    getting the same error:
    Subject 'test', Account: '', Server:
    '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error
    Number: 0x800CCC15

    I'll try to get rig of the PC-cilling. Wit my mouse over the little Icon,
    it continuously says (loading...).

    I am seeing Account: '' as your account information and
    this would not be the true account on the computer. It would normally be
    the email address that Cox has provided you with. You have a setup issue
    with your account name somewhere in the Account properties. Since I haven't
    got Windows Mail currently available I can't walk you through it but IIRC it
    is similar to OE in XP. So lets see how close it is: Open the Account
    properties and look at the full email address under the User information and
    it should be where the xxxx is the name they gave you
    as your email address. Under your outgoing mail server it should also have
    your email address along with your password. Again, unfortunately I don't
    have Windows mail available so you may have to look for them. is not a valid email account name however. That would
    be the pop address for receiving emails.

    In addition to my previous look here for comcast's step by step setup
    instructions. Granted this is for OE but should work in WM

  11. Email account names are strictly cosmetic, and can be anything
    you want. It has no effect on your email operation.

    I am having problems with windows mail sending yahoo emails. I use Yahoo
    plus and yahoo tell me to check the authentication box in the settings.
    This causes the Logon box to appear but the password and user name are
    not accepted . Is this a fault of Windows mail or Yahoo. So far talks
    with Yahoo have failed to resolve this question.I never need ed
    authentication until recently as mailings went out without any problems.
    Does any one have a solution?
