I am having trouble as well with aim mail. I cannot send an e-mail through
live with aim. It puts the mail into the outbox. then when I close live it
tries to send it and says:
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
inactivity.

Subject 'test'
Server: 'smtp.aim.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No

I must not have set it up correctly.

thank you,
John
