    The detail that I provide Is for Outlook Express, WM is the same animal.

    I would guess that you need to go to Tools>accounts>select
    account>properties>advanced tab and change the outgoing SMTP port to 587 ?

  3. Email scanning should be turned off in any anti-virus. Also exclude EML
    files from the scan. It provides no
    protection not provided by the regular resident protection.
    Besides that, McAfee and Norton are not compatible with Windows Mail and
    Outlook Express and should be uninstalled. The latest version of Trend's
    anti-virus seems to be causing problems too.
