    Recently (about 2 days ago) I changed my passwords in my hotmail and msn mail accounts. Went through what I thought was the whole nine yards, including verifying.

    I can now receive mail through both of these accounts (hotmail and msn), but I can't send any mail unless I use my gmail account server. The popup window I get says...

    The Hotmail SMTP connection to server "smtp-mail.outlook.com " failed.

    There is an option to "Edit SMTP server list" and also an option to access the "connection doctor".

    I should add that I'm using an Apple Macbook Air if that makes any difference.

    Anyone know how to correct this? I don't like to use the gmail outgoing server as replies are returned to gmail instead of my outlook account.
