I have 2 email accounts, both running through btinternet.com
since I have downloaded AVG 9 I cannot send emails, I can receive ok but not send, the error msg is -
The message could not be sent. The authentication setting might not be correct for your outgoing e-mail [SMTP] server. For help solving this problem, go to Help, search for "Troubleshoot Windows Mail", and read the "I'm having problems sending e-mail" section. If you need help determining the proper server settings, please contact your e-mail service provider.
The rejected e-mail address was '*****@pat-it.co.uk'. Subject '*****', Account: 'PAT-iT', Server: 'mail.btinternet.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '553 From address not verified - see http://www.btyahoo.com/verify', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 553, Error Number: 0x800CCC78
Does this mean anything to you? Can you help as it did happen after downloading AVG 9.
What is your settings of AVG Email Servers (AVG -> menu Tools -> Advanced Settings -> Email Scanner -> Servers -> SMTP ...)?
Have you some special settings of SMTP configuration in your email client account?
I have a similar problem. Receive OK but can't send e-mails.
I get this error message when I try to send e-mail through either of my two accounts:
The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account: 'mail.orbitelcom.com', Server: 'mail.orbitelcom.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 5200, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

quote=PAT-iT]Hi Big Al , AVG Team...
After a bit of head scratching, your were right.... BT yahoo have updated their security, but did't bother emailing me direct!!!
This was just uncanny that it all happened at the same time as the AVG Download!
Keep up the good work and many thanks for your help.
Else some example of AVG Email server and email client settings with 3 different accounts - first not using SSL, else using SSL. Example will be only about incoming emails through POP connection (not IMAP) and please check correctness of showed pop servers (just common). AVG servers are available in AVG -> menu Tools -> Advanced settings -> E-mail Scanner -> Servers -> POP3.
1st account without SSL will have default settings:
AVG server - default - AutoPOP3:10110 / automatic login / connection - regular
Email client - default settings
2nd account with SSL - Google
AVG server - new (named Google) - Google:10111 / fixed host - pop.gmail.com:995 / connection - SSL (or SSL default)
Email client - pop3 server - 127.0.0.1 / pop3 port - 10111 / default username+password / encryption - none
3rd account with SSL - Yahoo
AVG server - new (named Yahoo) - Yahoo:10112 / fixed host - pop.mail.yahoo.com:995 / connection - SSL (or SSL default)
Email client - pop3 server - 127.0.0.1 / pop3 port - 10112 / default username+password / encryption - none
Else provide us with screenshots of your settings in AVG and email client (upload them to some online storage).
I followed the steps in the knowledge base. Everything is good on the POP3 servers, but whenever I try to set up an SMTP server following the steps outlined in the knowledge base, it does not work. I get this error:
The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test avg smtp', Account: 'mail.orbitelcom.com', Server: '127.0.0.1', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 5200, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
For now, I'm bypassing AVG on outgoing messages. Are there important reasons not to bypass? I've done AVG virus scans and Spybot scans on my hard drive and don't appear to have any infections to pass on to others.
Here's a transcription of my SMTP settings:
Windows Mail client settings
Outgoing mail (SMTP): 127.0.0.1
Outgoing mail server
My server requires authentication checked
(Settings filled in with user ID/e-mail address and password)
Server Port Numbers
Outgoing mail (SMTP): 5200
everything else is default
SMTP Server Name: AutoSMTO
Relay Host: Fixed host: mail.orbitelcom.com
Local port: 5200
Queue processing: Automatic
Server activation box checked
the mentioned error message indicates, that there is not opened the respective socket on the remote SMTP server. It is possible, that the SMTP server uses different port. Please make sure which port is being used for the SMTP server (you can ask your ISP) and change the AVG configuration this way:
- Open AVG user interface and press the F8 key.
- Navigate to the SMTP server settings.
- Type of login: Fixed host; fill in your SMTP server and port (e.g. mail.orbitelcom.com:465 - I don't know the correct port number, this is an example only).
- Save the settings and try sending some test message.
Also, please be informed that it is recommended to turn off the outgoing e-mail scanning (the attachments of the outgoing e-mails are scanned using the Resident Shield component when being attached to the message anyway).
