Windows Live Mail – Sending Problem Resolved

After 3 hours of messing around, Windows Live Mail – Outgoing mail was finally sorted, the mail account – –  is with Go Daddy and was successfully set up a few days age, shortly after setting it up a ‘Congratulations your online’ mail came.

I configured the POP3 settings after setting a new account and I could receive mail just fine, unfortunately I kept getting a failure to send, with the following message: error 530 authentication required.

I checked my username and password (more than once!), tried changing from port 25, to 3535 and other flavors’, all to no avail.

It turns out that in the Go Daddy e-mail mangers panel, SMTP Relays should show 250, mine showed originally 0.

The resolution was to delete the account, and recreate the exact same one back again, and miraculously, the SMTP field had 250 in it, and everything worked, I could send mails again 🙂

smtpI did try and edit the existing account to manually trigger the SMTP to 250 from ), but this generated an ‘Invalid ‘error, so was not an option.

To stop Windows Live giving outgoing error messages based on the unsent mails, from the ‘Home’ tab, scroll down to ‘Outbox’ and delete unsent mails.

Replacement Anti-Virus Installed

I originally used Norton Anti-Virus across 5 PC’s in the house but the annual renewal costs were getting a bit silly, especially as I want to buy radio stuff so savings have to be made!

The family bank with Barclays and they offer each account holder FREE Kaspersky Anti-Virus software with two PC licences, I have downloaded the program and linked the accounts to a centralized web based dashboard and everything is working just fine, as I have three PCs including the weather PC, it costs an additional £9.95 for 5 PC licensing which is a great offer in my view, (I did try the free AVG Anti-Virus program but was plagued with ‘buy now’ and ‘upgrade’ messages).

Kaspersky Total Security is free if you bank with Barclays, the link is at the bottom of your online banking page.

Changing Call sign

I didn’t realize how many programs or places I needed to change my details from the old Intermediate call sign to my new M0HTA one, so I thought I’d list them:

Echolink (both desktop and Mobile App)
APRS (Mobile App)
DL-FLdigi (High Altitude Balloon tracking)
Ham Radio Deluxe (including update status html file)
European Phase Shift Club Ham Radio links

I’m sure I’ve missed a few as well!!
