View Full Version : [SOLVED] Can't send hotmail when using Sylpheed

October 9th, 2012, 10:06 AM
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:

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!
