Windows 7: SMTP settings DOES NOT WORK in Outlook 2010, but DOES WORK in 2007.

SMTP settings DOES NOT WORK in Outlook 2010, but DOES WORK in 2007.

Hello,

I've got a problem that I thought would be easy to fix, but for some reason I cannot get my SMTP server to send mail on ANY computer using Outlook 2010 (there are several now), however the exact same settings work on ALL computers using Outlook 2007.

When sending mail with Outlook 2010, I always receive the error: "Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or internet service provider (ISP)"

METHOD A:

Here are the settings that work on every computer using Outlook 2007:
POP3
Incoming mail server: mail.mydomain.org
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): mail.mydomain.org
Under More Settings>Outgoing Server:
My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication (checked YES)
Use the same settings as my incoming mail server (checked YES)
Under Advanced Tab:
Use defaults 110 and 25 with no SSL or Encryption

These are the setting that work fine in 2007 but when set up in 2010 it will not send.

TO ADD TO THE CONFUSION:

METHOD B:

I figured out a work around using another SMTP server which DOES work in 2010:
POP3
Incoming mail server: mail.mydomain.org
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.fm
Under More Settings>Outgoing Server:
My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication (checked NO)
Log on using:
username
password
Under Advanced Tab:
Use defaults 110 and 25 with no SSL or Encryption

THIS WORKS!

Why does METHOD A work with 2007 and METHOD B work with 2010 using a different SMTP server?? I need Method A to work with 2010! Thanks!
