In the last few days I have been able to receive emails but I cannot send emails. My outgoing port says 587 and the incoming port is 110. I have not made any changes. Not sure what the problem is. I know very little about computers so talk to me so I can understand....:)
Solved! Go to Correct Answer
You have been asked to change ports for several years and to change address for well over a year.
Also password must be in plain text. No apop (authenticated pop) or other encyption.
When I changed the 110 to 995 it went back to 25
Make sure to click SSL first. 995 should then show up as default.
Are you perhaps a Yahoo email user? The yahoo/verizon use different servers. They support these ports or some others for debuging

I now have another problem. when I receive mail it doesn't show up in my inbox. I have to click on send/receive to see if I have any mail. Hopefully this is just a minor problem.
