Customer Question
I am unable to...

I am unable to send messages from my hotmail email. I can receive messages but not send. It keeps saying "cannot verify account"

Technician's Assistant: Are emails stuck in your outbox or are you receiving an error message?

They are stuck - I have to check cancel to get out of it and now they are all lined up at the bottom of my screen!

Technician's Assistant: Are there any antivirus or firewall settings that could block you from sending mail?

How would I check that?

Technician's Assistant: The Email Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Do I change it in my general settings or in Hotmail itself?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No I still cannot send from my Mac Book - however I can send email from my Iphone so it must be something in the laptop
Email technician: Sandy, Computer Specialist replied 5 months ago

It is an issue with email client smtp settings.

Are you using your mac mail(Apple mail) to check your emails?

If yes, please check the SMTP settings and correct them to the following:

outgoing mail server smtp-mail.outlook.com

Choose to Use Authentication.

Choose to Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for outgoing mail security.

Keep me posted.

I will be standing by.

PS I just checked settings in my hotmail account and it said "hotmail off line" -I would think it should say "on line" or "connected" -right? but I don't know how to change it back
Email technician: Sandy, Computer Specialist replied 5 months ago

Please tell me if you're using Microsoft outlook email client like 2007 or 2016 to check your Hotmail email account?
