    I just purchased this computer with Vista installed.
    I am receiving messages fine, but cannot send.
    I receive an error message that says "This message could not be sent."
    I first tried to send it asa reply to a received message. I then tried to
    send it as a new message. NEITHER WORKED!!!!

  4. That doesn't sound like a Windows Mail error message.
    By any chance are you running one of the non-compatible antivirus
    programs, McAfee or Norton? If so, you will need to uninstall it.

    Check your mail server account to make sure your out going mail server
    address is correct

  6. Email scanning should be turned off in any anti-virus. It provides no
    protection not provided by the regular resident protection. Beside that,
    McAfee and Norton are not compatible with Windows Mail.

    How do I do this?

  8. Who is your ISP? They should have website that explains how to
    set up a mail account. Most have not updated their instructions
    for Windows Mail, but you can use the instructions for Outlook Express.

    To check your server settings in Windows Mail, go to Tools, Accounts,
    select the account, Properties, Servers.

    You probably don't have the correct settings for your outgoing mail
    server. Who is your email provider? Many people choose their
    internet provider as their email provider also, since most internet
    accounts include one or more email accounts.

    Also, is that the complete error message? If not, right click on it and
    copy all of it to your next message.

    Interference from antivirus programs often causes problems with
    sending mail. What if any antivirus programs do you have, and have
    you ever had a Norton or McAfee antivirus program on that computer?
    New computers often come with a trial version of an antivirus program
    already installed.
