I am trying to set up my tiscali email account with Windows Live Mail.
I have all the server settings correct and I can receive mail ok I just cannot send.

I get the following error:
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

Subject 'TEST'
Server: 'smtp.tiscali.co.uk'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No
Socket Error: 10053

I have already googled this alot and on other forums they say to check your anti virus and firewall settings. I am using Bullguard, I have disabled the antivirus and firewalls but still I cannot send email.
I have turned off the windows firewall, still nothing.
I have changed the port numbers from 25 to 587 to 487 at the suggestion of other forums but still nothing.

It's doing my head in, any ideas what else I should try?
Thanks for your help.

the settings I am using are:

pop.tiscali.co.uk port 110 (works fine to receive mail)

smtp.tiscali.co.uk port 25 (does not work to send mail)

This server requires a secure connection - box is unticked

Log on using clear text authentication box is checked

I am using windows 7.

Hi Nic2k83,

Try the following port 465 or 2525? in smtp, what it sounds like to me is that your ISP is block port 25.

all sorted, it turns out tiscali smpt server will only accept emails from tiscali isp.
as my home broadband is provided by BT, the messages fail to send.
I have just taken the PC to another address where the ISP is tiscali, and hey presto, all works fine.
Job done.
