Right-click on the account name in the folder pane and select Properties.

  • On the Servers tab, ensure that My server requires authentication is selected.
  • On the Advanced tab, change the outgoing mail port to 587
    Deselect This server requires a secure connection (SSL)

Click Work offline and remove any unsent messages from the outbox (below the account folders in the folder pane.
Close down WLMail and wait a few minutes. Re-launch the program, then compose and send a new test message to yourself. Post any new error message in your reply.
