  1. Microsoft Mail app not sending or receiving. just started to happen.


    Everytime i try and send an email or receive an email the Microsoft Mail App sends an email from "Windows" telling me an error happened.

    stating -

    We weren't able to send this message, so we've put it in your Drafts folder. Before you try sending it again, you can check to see if the address is correct and that no attachments are too large.


    I'm trying to send empty emails, but not happening.


    Any help from Microsfot would be great. I have computer for only a couple months brand new.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Mail App can receive mail but can't send it

    I am trying to use the Windows 10 Mail App to send/receive email using my work email account. I am able to successfully receive email but everytime I tried to send a new email, it goes straight to the Outbox and never gets sent.

    When I received email initially, I had to accept a certificate. I haven't been prompted to accept a certificate with sending but I suspect that is the hang up.

    How can I get the Mail App to send emails?

    Mail not sending!

    Your last reference was to Mailbird- it seems you've reverted to Mail.

    The choice of pop3 or imap for receiving mail is up to you.. smtp is a different thing.

    Suggest you try sending mail with Mailbird

  4. Microsoft Mail app not sending or receiving. just started to happen.

    Is it possible to create an account to *just* send email with Windows 10 mail?

    The Windows Mail client is not a mail server, and you need a mail server in order to send email, even if only to a local destination.

    So yes and no. You'd need a real mail server, not a fake one, that the client can connect to using one of the protocols it supports in order to use the Windows Mail client application.

    This also isn't the Windows Mail app being "stupid". Mail servers are logged in to using accounts created on them. No mail client can send email on its own, they all connect to a server to do the sending and receiving. If your mail application can send on its own, that's because it's a mail server that happens to function as a client in some ways.
