View Full Version : Can not send emails from outlook.com in mail app

12-19-2012, 09:36 PM
Hi all,

I upgraded windows from windows 7 to windows 8 pro. After installing, I set up the mail app, added serveral email accounts, one gmail account, one outlook.com, and three pop3/imap on my domains. My gmail works fine. I can send emails and receive with gmail. However, IMAP accounts and outlook.com have problem. I can not send emails from them, only can receive emails. They just end up in the outbox and then nothing happens.

Do you have this issue? How can you fix it? Any help would be appreciated.

This free suite of apps from MS should prove to be valuable to you. The inbuilt Windows 8 Mail, while still good, isn't quite yet a full featured Mail suite.
