Good day.
I have a persistent and very annoying problem with Outlook, a programme I have used successfully for years.
I have today set up Outlook and it is now receiving e-mail but when I try so send mail it sits in Outbox and refuses to go.
I am able to send mail via the BT site but I find the site awkward and nothing like as user friendly as Outlook.
I would appreciete assisstance to enable Outlook back to normal

Thanks, ***** ***** the problem Gordon.
You need to use these settings as your settings are incorrect
Server as
Port: 465
Save this and it should then send.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Let me know the results please
