Re: cannot send or receive emails

Good to hear it is working.
However, the last error message you posted may indicate that you need to
check the following setting:

Go to Tools, Accounts, select that account, Properties, Servers.
Enable the "My server requires authentication" option.

It is working! I clicked off the SSL on the incoming and outgoing.

Oh, I was not having this problem until I downloaded the last Windows update.
Do you think that may be causing the probem?

When I spoke with my internet tech people, I was told to have both the
incoming and outgoing SSL checked. I took them off and here is the error

Port 110, no SSL, which is the default.
The link winston gave you does not specify advanced ports or features, so
why are you attempting to use them?
