Can't send e-mails on Windows Live

Have been using Windows Live mail with Windows 8 & 8.1 for a long time with no problem. All of a sudden it won't send e-mails from my netcarrier accounts but it will receive - no problem. It will send & receive from my Windstream account. I have made no changes to my system other than windows updates when the problem showed up. I have tried with & without SSL and ports 25 & 587 with no success. Don't know why the sudden problem.

Firedog, many thanks for your efforts. I contacted my ISP and they said there was no problem on their end.  My e-mail provider claimed the same thing and I could send from their web-mail. l also tried another e-mail client, Thunderbird, with the same result. Out of frustration I took my laptop for a ride and tried some hotspots - all successful. I returned home and tried again  without any luck. Out of desperation, I reset the  home modem provided by my ISP and everything is working fine! It would seem that there was some "glitch" in the modem cleared by re-setting it. Thanks again for your help.
