Open Windows Live Mail

Right click on email account and click on Properties

Click on Servers tab to view or modify incoming and outgoing server settings

Ensure that the username and password are typed correctly

Also, ensure to place a check mark on My server requires authentication under Outgoing Mail Server

Click on Advanced tab to change Server Port Numbers

The servers for Outgoing Mail (SMTP) is usually 465 or 587. Try 587 and see what happens

Set your SMTP Port back to 465 so in case you forget it due to trying different scenarios.

Just to confirm, you are using POP3 & not IMAP4 correct? and have you tried it with Secure (SSL) Off

You must also use your full email address e.g. [email protected]

Finally, check that any antivirus you are using such as McAfee isn't blocking you from sending mail.

After that I have no idea. You should contact your provider.
