I am trying to send email from TWO DIFFERENT accounts on a Windows 7 64 bit. I am running as an Administrator and always have been. I have already quintuple checked all the SMTP server settings on both accounts in regards to SSL, User Name, etc (neither are on Port 25). I can send through the Cox website email but I want to use my own local email. I thought it was them, but then I got an account with a different company I am doing work for and I also cannot send with their server (also correctly configured).
I have added Eudora 7, Eudora 8 and Thunderbird to my allowed programs on the Windows Firewall. I can receive email from both accounts on all three programs, but none of them will mail anything out. I am getting the message "The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server mail.and-mag.com timed out." or the same one with my Cox SMTP server name (smtp.cox.net).
I have Eudora 7 set up on an XP system back home on the Cox account (I am living away for work ATM). I called my wife and had her read me back all the settings and set mine to be exactly the same. Hers works, mine do not.
I am not on my own ISP for internet access, I am using the internet that my landlady gets because it is included in my rent (and also because Cox does not service this area). It is wired internet so my laptop is sort of a desktop for now. The ISP my landlady uses is Comcast, but I don't think that should make a difference.
