My Windows Live Mail can send but not receive emails

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

An unknown error has occurred. It displays the following:

Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80070057
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 25
Secure(SSL): No

This message has been appearing since last Wednesday while I was using Windows Live Mail on Windows 7. I ran a virus scan last Tuesday night and on Wednesday, my email failed respond properly anymore. I can’t send anything but I am able to receive emails. I've tried to type in the email address manually and I was able to send one email but after that, it stopped working again.

So how can I get rid of this problem? Thanks for the help.
