My Apple Mail used to work fine until two weeks ago when all of a sudden it refused to send out emails!

I am still able to receive all of my emails, just cannot answer them without logging in over the hotmail website.

Following message shows up when I try to send an email:


Connections to the server “smtp.live.com” on the default ports timed out.



Select a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your Outbox until it can be sent


now I looked up alternative servers and tried it with them but appears that none of those work...


I hope you guys have any idea?

Thanks for your help

Apple Mail, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
