    live mail server error


    On my PC running windows 8.1 and windows live mail. I have mail from two different servers on my live mail account. has always worked fine. changed the server settings on one and it changed the server settings on my default account on the other (primary) account. Set the server setting back on the default account but still will not send mail on this one account.

    checked with my host to confirm proper settings. Can sent mail, on this account, on tablet and smartphone but not on PC.

    removed the account and added the account again - did not resolve problem.
    used cleanmgr to clear cache.

    have closed live mail and restarted computer after each repair attempt.

    any ideas?

    and as with most computer problems, if you wait long enough, it will resolve itself. After a week of trying everything I could think of, this evening, like magic my mail is working again!
