Hi,

 

Im having the exact same problem, email has worked fine since 2008 and on friday it stopped allowing me to send email. I have no problem recieving, or sending from my iphone over the same newtwork my mac is using.

 

The smtp.live.com server is showing as offline, having tried changing ports, deleting and reinstalling my account.

 

I no longer have tech support from apple, and have reached the point I no longer have any idea what to try in order to resolve this issue.

 

Im based in the UK, using snow leopard on a 2008 machine and my service is provided through BT infinity.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards

Phil
