    Dear Reader,

    In outlook Express 6 after setting up POP3 account following message appears when trying to send e-mail via outgoing server (SMTP)

    The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Hotmail', Server: 'smtp.live.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Please notice that incoming POP3 server
    functions perfectly alright

    Thanks for your time and effort.
    LS

    PS. To clarify the situation I will be happy to answer any supplementary questions (if any).
