    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test outbox', Account:
    '', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP,
    Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
    can you walk me through the solution for this error?

  2. is not your ISP. As such, your home ISP will block
    your use of any port 25 SMTP server other than their own.
    For an explanation of this policy, see

    To send from home, you will have to substitute your home ISP's
    SMTP server. If you need help with that, let us know who your
    home ISP is.

  4. It should work just fine. Many SMTP servers don't require a login
    (authentication) as long as your network address (IP) belongs to
    their network. If you run into an authentication problem when sending,
    let us know, and post a copy of the error message.
