Having a problem with Live Mail not sending my outgoing e-mails. This has just happened in the last week or so, receives okay but doesn't send.
Have Windows 7, came on my computer, HP,that I bought about 6 months ago. This is the error message that comes up.

An unknown error has occurred.

Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80070057
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No

I'm not very computer literate and have no idea what's going on.

Thank you for the reply. I did delete everything, 2 items, in my outbox and it's working okay today. I did the same thing,deleting, a couple days ago and it didn't work, so who knows, maybe it just needed some rest time:)
Thank you again, this forum is one of the best on GW,certainly one of the most helpful.
