Outgoing mail from Microsoft Outlook for Mac 2011

Hi,

 

I am trying to set up my Outlook for Mac 2011.

 

I can receive emails from my @bigpond.net.au email, but I cannot send them.

My ISP is Internode.

 

I have the current settings in Preferences:

outgoing server: mail.bigpond.com

port: 25

nothing else ticked 

authentication: use incoming server info

 

I have tried changing the port to 26 using 'overide default port'

I have tried changing the authentication to: 'use name and password'

I have tried changing the outgoing mail server to: mail.internode.on.net

 

None of this works.

Outlook tries to send the mail, then I get a Error code -3259 on the Errors list. Cannot connect to the server.

 

I have 3 other email accounts (microsoft and gmail email accounts) that are all functioning OK. On my list of email accounts in the Preferences tab, these 3 accounts have green circles next to them, while the Bigpond account does not.

 

What am I doing wrong?!!!

 

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

You can't relay. No ISP will allow this. At least internode have a sercue server. Are you sure you're not been migrated to the outlook.com or live.com? Failing all that there are ways via gmail.

Cheers,
Dave

Hi Dave,

 

Thanks for the reply.

I have no idea regarding the being migrated to outlook.com or live.com. 

I have a feeling this was done last year, but I am not sure.

What is that and how do I know? Also, if I have, does it mean I can fix it??!!!!

 

Re gmail, what do you suggest?

 

Cheers

Matt
