When i try to send email using Outlook Express i get The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMTP', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0 message.

Does anyone have a suggestion of how i can fix this so i can start using my email.

Who is your ISP?
Have you contacted them to see about server settings?
They may be having a problem with the SMTP server.

"SMTP" on its own is not a server.
You need to contact your provider to find out the proper SMTP address, typically "smtp.<provider name>.com".
