View Full Version : MS outlook email sending issues

I am having issues sending messages from my work email account when I am at home or in some hotel rooms. I receive email ok, but it will not send it. When it finally times out, it gives me the following message.

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

It is a basic pop3 account. The following are my settings.

email address

Account Type POP3
Incoming Mail Server
Outgoing mail server (SMTP)

User name
Password is correct.

Under more settings, outgoing server tab...

I have the "Use same settings as my incoming mail server" checked. I also have "remember password" checked.

It works fine when I am in the office. Then I bring my laptop home to finish things up, and it will not let me send anything. Any help would be appreciated.

Your ISP is blocking relaying. the easiest way to fix it is to put your home ISP SMTP info in the SMTP setting.

Edited to add:

or google "isp blocking port 25"

I use Thunderbird and recently came into a similar problem. Apparently my account settings were changed(not by me of course) in regards to my outgoing mail server.

In my case, my outgoing mail server somehow doubled the name so it looked something like this:

My outgoing mail is a long word and the box I had opened didn't allow me to see the whole name initially. Only when I went to edit the outgoing server info did I notice the extra stuff.
