I have a Windows 7 and Windows Vista computers. I recently created a new account in Outlook with the IMAP server. I get incoming mail ok but an error message comes up saying there is an issue with my outgoing SMTP server. I have checked the settings and all looks ok, except i dont know if i should change the port numbers manually. Can anyone help me please?

Thanks alot! :D

Try using port 587 (instead of 25) for your outgoing (SMTP) server.
