Just a Stupid Outlook Question

by 4 comments
I have several accounts set up in Outlook Express. I have no problems receiving any mail and I can send it out with no problem except for one of them.

When I try to send from that account it gives me this error:

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Subject 'subject of email', Protocol:SMTP, Port 25, Secure (SSL): No, Error Number:0x800CC0F

Why is this happening. I can receive with this account fine and there are other accounts in outlook getting and putting from the same server! Has been happening for a few weeks now. I have to go in and change the "from" address everytime I want to send a mail from this address/account.

    Does the server require authentication to send messages? There is a checkbox in Outlook for this.

      As Chris says, it could be something small like not ticking that box for that account when it's ticked for all the others, but it would have had to have been like that to start with. As far as I remember, you have to click on a button to get to that bit, so it would be easy to overlook.If it's something that's happened suddenly then I can't see how it could've unticked itself.

      Outlook can be odd though. A friend of mine can't email me from his address book anymore (although he can still email his other contacts that way). My address appears in the address bar and the e-mail departs when sent but never arrives. Yet when he types the address in directly, the e-mail turns up every time. That is not at all the logical way that computers are (allegedly!) supposed to be.

    I actually had that happen to me a few years back, but other than chiming in with "I've seen that before" I can't help you as I can't remember the cause and the cure.

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.

    I read recently that as of late August, Google has removed the 3 adsense units per page limit and replaced it with a policy that has no specific limit but which requires that the amount of ads not exceed the amount of content. Is anyone familiar with this and can anyone suggest how best to implement this.
