Post subject:  SMTP not working..

I can't send emails from MS outlook for some reason. I've set up the right SMTP settings (, and my SMTP port is 25 and my POP port is 110.

Receiving emails works without any problems, it's only connecting to the SMTP server that's giving me problems. my webmail client works fine and freehostia says that they can use SMTP without problems. What could this be?

I've already opened a trouble ticket they don't know what it is. I'm guessing it's something on my side but I can't tell what it is, as it used to work and suddenly stopped yesterday...

I get this error when trying to send emails:

Task ' - Sending' reported error (0x80042109): 'Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Is anyone else on hex15 having troubles getting access to SMTP from an email client?

The free hosting accounts have their SMTP disabled by default.

If you wish to activate the SMTP you can either upgrade your hosting plan to a paid one or you can upgrade the current plan for additional mailboxes. Any of the above options will activate the SMTP for the account.

I'm on a paid account. I've fixed the problem now. For anyone who might have this issue in the future:

to use outlook you need to set your incoming to (or whatever yours is), and you need to put in your email address and password. For outgoing you need to put in your ISPs smtp address, but not authentication, just leave it blank and it'll work.

Please note that we had a little server issue, but our administrators already fixed the problem.

I've the same issue as describe here. Incoming email works fine. Outgoing give me troubles. I must say, I'm trying to setup the Mail application from Leopard.

I'm using " " as outgoing mail server.
Authentification: checked

MD5-Challenge response

What else?

Port: 25

Also, sending emails via webmail works fine!
