Question

Q: Task - Sending reported error (0x80042109) : Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server.

I have my web-based email linked via POP3 to Outlook 2010.  I can recieve emails, but I cannot sent them.  I have checked all the information with the email company, and it all checks out.

Answer

A:

I have figured out the problem, the SMTP port number that Outlook sets as the default was not working for some reason.  Outlook sets the outgoing port number as 25, and my mail provider said to use the other default, ports 587.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
