I am trying to send e-mails thought my Yahoo, Xtra and Hotmail account, but I get these error messages:

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

An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'Yahoo', Server: 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com.au', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '421 Cannot connect to SMTP server 209.191.106.133 (209.191.106.133:25), connect error 10060', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Error Number: 0x800CCC67

An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'Xtra mail', Server: 'send.xtra.co.nz', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '421 Cannot connect to SMTP server 124.108.96.68 (124.108.96.68:25), connect error 10060', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Error Number: 0x800CCC67

Everything was working fine the other day, and I can send e-mail fine thought my Orcon account, which uses smtp.xtra.co.nz.

Is anyone else on Telecom / Xtra and / or have a Yahoo account having problems sending e-mails??

I am using Win XP SP2 & Outlook Express is my e-mail client & on Telecom / Xtra Big Time

I belive Xtra big time is blocking port 25, try changing the smtp port in your outlook to port 587

smtp.live.com requires SSL on port 25 with authentication, authentication is broken I think.

smtp.mail.yahoo.com.au should be SSL on port 465 (not 25) with authentication.

send.xtra.co.nz should be SSL on port 465 (not 25)  with authentication.

So to summarise, authentication is broken on all accounts with ports wrong on last two accounts.

Spyware: smtp.mail.yahoo.com.au should be SSL on port 465 (not 25) with authentication.

send.xtra.co.nz should be SSL on port 465 (not 25) with authentication.


Are Yahoo / Yahoo Xtra now forcing people to use SSL on port 465?? As I have been using these current setting for the past few year with no issues, till now.

I think you are mistaken. My guess is that Outlook Express has simply set the port to 25 because someone set up accounts using the account wizard or has been fiddling with manual settings and didn't consider the ports because they didn't know what they were.

EDIT: How do you explain the settings for 3 accounts changing by themselves?? And the settings are clearly wrong on each account as indicated by the errors.
