Outlook 2007 not connecting with server

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

When I try to set up an account in Outlook 2007 it is not connecting with the server. I tried entering manually using POP3 / SMPT settings but the problem remains. I know the problem is with Outlook because I used the same account in Mozilla Thunderbird. Does anyone have any idea what is happening?

Outlook 2007 not connecting with server


Hi Deane_Haswell,

     There are possible reasons why your Outlook 2007 cannot connect with the server:

  1. Probably the email server ( Outlook 2007) you are using has enabled the Secure Password Authentication.  Now you can set the authentication by Loging in as your name and password.
  2. Might as well the antivius  or any firewall software could block the server.  Then you have to configure in your firewall to enable the server you are using.


Hope this might help you.
