Change SMTP Server - Windows Live Mail

    Open Windows Live Mail then up the top select the File Menu and then Options followed by Email Accounts.
    Select your email account from the list and choose 'Properties'.
    Change the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) field to the same as your incoming mail server.

Thanks , I ve sorted it now, I have no idea why it changed overnight. ?
Where it says  Change the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) field to the same as your incoming mail server, I thought you had to change something in the box,  ::)
Not easy  for a dumbo like me !

Glad you're sorted now!

There was a W10 update last night... it is possible that settings for Mail were "altered" by it!!


I noticed an additional Program added to my Startup! So, when I saw it start I knew something changed.

Yes, Mail could have changed!

As for Facebook...I hear it can take ages for changes to be registered for a Profile, especially after the US Presidency trouble they had.

For now, I'd just wait.  But am not a Facebook user!
