Howdy,

We bought a new laptop and it came with Windows Live mail. A friend set it up for us but he apparently typed in the outgoing server incorrectly.

When my wife tried to send an e-mail an error box popped up. I noticed in the box that the server is
'stmp.east.cox.nst'. It should read 'stmp.east.cox.net'. He typed in .nst instead of.net.

I looked up the error code.
0x800CCC0D IXP_E_CANT_FIND_HOST Cannot locate server

I Googled the problem and came up with a Microsoft link.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows...inish#section_3

I followed the instructions but I can not find where to click to make the change for the e-mail server so I can correct it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Dennis :thumbsup:

Open Windows Live Mail.

At the top of the page, click TOOLS, choose ACCOUNTS.

Double click the name of your Cox account.

Mail Properties will open.

Server tab. Make the change in the smtp field, click APPLY to save the change.

Close out Mail Properties.

Send yourself a test message to make sure it's working.

Post back here to let us know if it worked to solve your issue.
