Windows 7: I am baffled, Outlook 2010 will not send emails

I am baffled, Outlook 2010 will not send emails

I just got a new nice laptop dell computer (my old laptop running windows 7 64 bit and Office 2007 is all working fine - sending emails fine on a POP3 account).

The problem is, Outlook 2010 will not send emails with the same POP3 settings. I have been all over this with my ISP, changed the outgoing port from 587 to 25, changed my outgoing mail server to smtp.ipower.com to myusername.ipower.com. Nothing seems to help. My ISP swears it is a defect with outlook and windows 7, but how could that be?

Error I get when trying to send an email:
Task 'myemailaddress@livingwaterfunding.net - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

HELP! thx

Who is your ISP?

And it's obviously a setting somewhere. "Where" is the question. Have you checked the ISP's website for instructions?

BTW I'm using 2010 on Windows 7 x64 without issue.

OK, let's see if we can get you fixed up.

Have you looked at this page - IPOWER Knowledgebase - Configuring an Email Client for your IPOWER POP/IMAP mailbox

Also are you doing the manual setup in Outlook?

Anti Virus?

Temporarily turn off your AV and try sending.

Can you recieve e-mail? If so, than it's something with a setting on outgoing.

Make sure you check the "My outgoing server requires authentication" box. If already checked un-check it.

Also are you using these procedures......

Don't use the automatic stuff though.
