I’m using Thunderbird V3, Incredimail & Windows Live 2011 as my email clients, and I find difficulties in sending the emails.

Attached is a screenshot of my problem.

Your help will be highly appreciated.

Error:

Sending of message failed.
The message could not be sent because connecting to SMTP server 127.0.0.1 failed. The server may be unavilable or is refusing SMTP connections. Plwase verify that your SMTP server settings are correct and try again, or contact the server administrator.

Hi,

It is probably e-mail scanning causing this problem. Depending on your AV program, you may require to reinstall it. Turn off e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. It is a superfluous layer of shield that eats up CPUs, slows down sending and receiving, and causes a multitude of problems for example time-outs, account-setting changes and has even been accountable for loss of messages. Your latest A/V program will continue to guard you adequately. For more information visit:

Remember that for many AV programs, it may be important to uninstall the program, reinstall in Custom Mode, and uncheck e-mail scanning when the option is offered. Also, remember that WLMail has its own forum.
