off topic - Problem - Cannot prevent a message send failure in Windows Live Mail RRS feed

  • General discussion




    I am using Windows Live Mail for various email accounts. Operating system is Windows XP Home. I have Hotmail and AOL email accounts added. I can send email via Windows Live Mail for my Hotmail account using http server http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp but i cannot send email via Windows Live Mail for my AOL account via IMAP server outgoing SMTP smtp.uk.aol.com. This fails when i hit Send/Receive with "The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's email address. Server Error 556. Windows Live Mail Error ID 0x800CCC78"


    My problem is that i have opened an AOL account email in Windows Live Mail which had a read receipt which i accepted. Now each time i hit "Send/Receive", the read receipt fails to send and i cannot see any folder where i can delete the receipt. I have deleted the original email but this has not helped.


    How can i stop Windows Live Mail trying to send this email ? Or better still, can i reconfigure my AOL email account within Windows Live Mail to be able to send emails successfully?


    Thanks ....
