cannot send emails windows live mail

Hi, been having problems with windows live mail keep receiving this-
The host 'smpt.arrakis.es' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.

Subject 'testing'
Server: 'smpt.arrakis.es'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0D
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 587
Secure(SSL): No
Socket Error: 11004

Checked with my server everything is set up correctly. Although he did change Port. 25 to 587. I am receiving emails ok. We have installed Avast free as internet security. This problem has occured after we re-installed Windows 7 as recovery due to a crash. Have spent hours browsing internet for answers so far nothing seems to work. Any suggestions will be greatly apprieciated.

Sorry just did! I am a bit slow, I checked the ports for Avast and the number for outgoing is 25,587. Tried it with 587, didn't work.

Unless I am mistaken, that error code means it cannot find the server. Check your server name and make sure that is correct. Also, some servers only require the username to connect and some require the entire email address.

you have smPT instead of smTP, you have the last 2 letters transposed.
