Can receive but not send send emails


  • All of a sudden I am not able to send emails from Windows Live. All has been fine for several weeks since I upgraded to Win10. Outgoing emails just sit in the Outbox & I get the following error message :

    The message could not be sent. The setting for your outgoing email [SMTP] server might need to be configured. To find the server settings for '', please contact your email service provider.

    Subject 'test'
    Server Error: 550
    Server Response: 550 5.7.1 <>... Relaying denied: You must check for new mail before sending mail.
    Server: ''
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC79
    Protocol: SMTP
    Port: 25
    Secure(SSL): No

    I can import my emails without problem but not reply or compose new & send. Have tried various "fixes" proposed on many forums but no good. Anybody help me please ?
