I am using Office 10 Outlook on an IBM clone computer. I could receive and send emails up until 2 days ago, when outgoing mail started accumulating in my Outbox.
I traced the problem to a communication problem with Shaw - Outlook could not contact the Shaw server and timed out on sending.
I then went into Shaw and got the current Configurations for outgoing mail. I used the outgoing mail server: mail.shaw.ca. I have my account and password entered (with remember my password checked). I selected the outgoing server and placed a check mark next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication and selected the same settings as my incoming mail server. I selected Outgoing server (SMTP): 587 and TLS for encrypted connection.
Now, when I try to send email, I get a request to enter my password. Over and over and over again.
So I can receive email, but I can't send it.
Any ideas on what to try next?
(Historically, I have not been able to use the recommended out going server. Most recently, I have used: mx3.grouptelecom.net, with outgoing server 25 and no authentication. This had worked for the last several years.)
