Re: [OOL] Can receive, but cannot send email in Outlook 2010

said by frdrizzt:

Sometimes AV software will change settings on its own. Make sure your outbound email settings are as follows:

server name: mail.optimum.net (or mail.optonline.net)
port: 587
authentication: same ID/pwd as incoming
SSL: No

Or you can/may use the following:
port: 25
authentication: none
SSL: No

If those settings match, delete anything in your outbox & retest.

supposedly the mail.optonline.net doesn't work any longer, must be mail.optimum.net.

They resolve to the same IP, so they both will work. The optonline.net might not be supported by reps.

I prefer actual connection attempts over 'nslookup' for testing SMTP servers:
C:\Dig>telnet mail.optonline.net 587
Connecting To mail.optonline.net...
220 mta2.srv.hcvlny.cv.net -- Server ESMTP (Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.2
-8.04 (built Feb 28 2007))
quit
221 2.3.0 Bye received. Goodbye.
 
Connection to host lost.
