Outlook 2007 has worked fine for me, until today when the error (0x80042109) appeared when trying to send outgoing mail. I don't have a firewall turned on, nor do I have AV software interfering with transmission, nor have I changed anything in my account
settings. I have followed the microsoft support site's suggestions for this error up until the point of reinstalling Outlook. I have restarted the program, restarted my laptop, and have restarted my internet connection (which works fine) numerous times.
I added my hotmail account in outlook to see if it would let me send emails, and it does.
It appears only to be with gmail that it will not let me send outgoing mail. I have checked and rechecked the settings - everything is set up the way it is supposed to be, ports are correct, etc. This error appears after a moment every time
I attempt to resend the message.
Any help you anyone can provide would be great. Thanks,

Thanks for the response. I actually tried doing that multiple times, but it seems as if there was a problem on Google's side: the next morning it worked flawlessly. It is possible that they were experiencing problems with their smtp port, but who knows.
Anyway, thanks again for the response!
