    Can't send hotmail when using Sylpheed

    I have just installed Sylpheed as an email client and I cannot for some reason send email, only receive it; I have a hotmail account.

    I get the following message:

    Error
    Can't connect to SMTP server: smtp.live.com:25

    I've searched the internet for a solution, and although I've seen that other Sylpheed users have had the same problem, I've yet to find a solution. One website suggested changing the SMTP port from 25 to 587, but this does not work for me.

    Can someone offer a fix to this problem?

    Do you have sylpheed set to use TLS/SSL for outgoing mail?

    Since my original post, I've managed to fix the problem. I hadn't in fact ticked the TLX box!
