    Microsoft Office Outlook Not Sending Emails
    « on: December 08, 2008, 06:00:15 PM »
    My outlook stopped sending emails from my outbox. They just stay there. I am receiving emails fine just unable to send. I am on Windows XP.

    Edit: I am using Outlook 2007.

      No errors. It worked after I re-booted my laptop. I'm not sure why it happened.

          Ok well the problem is happening again. Clearly, some sort of recurring problem. Only thing it says is SEND/RECEIVE ERROR in the bottom right corner of Outlook.

            The error message says that the connection to the server was interrupted. However, I still have internet access and nothing has changed from the last time I sent an email.

              This problem keeps happening at random, often inconvenient intervals.
              Any ideas?

                Ok, I know I have the last like 5 posts on this thread, but I think the reason it doesn't work is because I'm on "wired" internet. When I unplug my Ethernet cord, it works.

                Double check your POP3 and SMTP server settings in Outlook...
                Being wired or wireless should make no difference.

                  I understand that it shouldn't make a difference but for some reason, on rare occasions, it does. Strangest thing.

                    Is your wireless internet connection still active when you have the wired connection? Sometimes that can cause problems within the network and make packets drop/connections fail. I've had it happen to me a few times.

                      Are you sending e-mails with large attachments?  If so, your ISP's SMTP server may have a hard time with those. :)

                      Part of the problem is most people don't generally deal with computer problems. So for most they think that close enough is good enough.

                        I am not sending large attachments. Generally, just a 2 to 3 sentence message.
