I just got this computer (Acer 5534) and it is running Windows 7 OS.  I am using Windows live mail and everything was running fine for the first month or so.  Now I can not send any email.  I have been using verizon for several years with no problems.  Here is the error code I am getting.

A TCP/IP error occurred while trying to connect to the server.

Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC15
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No

Please Help!

That message means that the server is  not responding.  Most likely, your provider is experiencing an issue with their SMTP server.  I checked the Verizon instructions for mail servers and it looks like you're set up properly already.
