I’ve been using GMail with the same settings for ages now, and it’s never been a problem until yesterday and today – seems that I can’t connect to the SMTP server on ports 25 nor 465 – anyone having the same problem? or know what’s up?
Error number is “0x800CCC7D” and it looks like other folk have been having the same problem with Outlook 2003… Like most of them it seems, I’ve been using GMail with Outlook for ages now, so there’s no reason why it shouldn’t work. I’ve just added port 465 to the Windows Firewall exception list and that doesn’t seem to have done anything. Time to get drastic and delete, then add the account again…
And that seems to have cleared it up… ;-)
