Sylpheed Mail Sending Problem in Lubuntu 11.10

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hello techyv, can you help me on this?

I want to incorporate my Hotmail account in Sylpheed: For example [email protected] Advice from Hotmail was to use the following servers:

POP3-Server: (Port 995)

SMTP Server: (Port 25)

Also for SSL :

SSL for POP3 and SMTP

SMTP- Authentication

I used these settings but:

I'm able to receive emails but cannot send them, nothing happens for about 60 seconds then I get a message saying the session has timed out, and the message cannot be sent. I'm running Sylpheed 3.2.0beta3, Lubuntu 11.10

I have quite an old laptop, but I think it is up to the job: IBM A22m, only 256 MB RAM,850 MHz, 10GB HD. I chose to use Lubuntu because of my older laptop. It has worked great up until now, aside from Sylpheed! I am used to Windows so don't have a lot of experience with Linux.
