I am one of the many Cox customers who cannot send emails from Microsoft Outlook. I use Outlook 2007. I have read the numerous postings on this subject. I have tried ever permutation of outgoing server (smtp) port: 465, 587, & 25 and SSL encryption. The closest that I get to not getting the error msg "..555 eastrmimpo cox connection refused from 68.83.12" is with port 587. With 587 and SSL, I get "... Try changing the method of encryption....". I have spoken and chatted with technical support with no success.
Also, I have checked off my outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication as well as my username and password.
I receive emails with no issues (at least for now:-))
Does anyone have any suggestions?
