Windows Live Mail and gmail problem

Hey all, I have a problem with Windows Live Mail, with gmail account, which started just resently.
Basicly I cant send any emails from my gmail account, It says it cant connect and gives me this error:

Server: 'smtp.gmail.com'
Windows Live Mail Fel-ID: 0x800CCC0E
Protokoll: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure (SSL): Ja
Socket-fel: 10060


NOTE: I got a HTC Desire phone, and this issue started right after i connected my gmail account to the phone. So i'm guessing it has something to do with that...

Yeah, thats right, but if one have 5-6 email accounts with different e-mail service providers, and get important mails hourly, then using client is easier, isnt it?

This is one I"ve never understood. Why would someone want 5 or 6 different accounts? I'm not knocking it but am curious. I could understand a couple for forwarding as a backup but more than that,hmm

Very good question.

Take my case, I use 6 accounts:

1. Personal, very confidential premium e-mail account: I give top priority to this address, because, I receive "emergency, must to have contact now" e-mails in this account. Distribution to people is limited, its almost like my mobile number. My mobile phone's inbox is married with it.

2. This one "looks alike" the first one, but its free; needs to be answered within a day or few hours.

3. For registering with forums, social networkings etc.(No need to synchronize unless a new registration done).

4. Nearly for getting junks: many website asks for e-mail address; I use this one (no need to synchronize unless I need to confirm the e-mail validation).

5. For my Website (number 1) as a web-master (need not to answered within a day, if I dont have time)

6. For my another website (number 2) as a web-master (need not to answered within a day, if I dont have time).

This keeps the flow of work easy.
I can define how frequently they will be synchronized. If I have been used only one e-mail address, I had to delete over 150 junks daily, that would take 10-15 min (to judge and delete).

Obviously, more busy person like an industrialist may use more e-mail accounts.
An average user does not need more than 2 accounts (one personal and other for getting junks after registering here and there).

Ah, very good. I can see now that I know your business. I was looking at it through the eyes of a single user.

Practically many features are not needed for a single user, for any application its true, and really they cause confusion among users...Log in, log off, switch user are great examples
