how to reset Live Mail settings back to default?

I just mess around with IE9 and Windows Live Mail.
there's a "reset" button in IE9 that I could reset everything back to factory preset but how about Live Mail?

There is no "reset" for WLM. Why not just go through the "options" and "safety options"? (It's good to become familiar with them.) What problem do you think will be fixed by a reset? You could try a "repair install" via "Programs and Features" but that may preserve the options you have already selected.

Re: "i have tried to change the settings stmp 25". Your settings for sending mail should all correspond to those specified by your ISP. This includes the smtp port, the outgoing server name, and the authentication settings. Right click on the account name and choose properties>servers & advanced tabs to find these items.
