    Windows Live Mail/Verizon FIOS will not send email out

    Trying to add a new laptop running Windows 7 to a home network.
    I can receive email, but cannot send.
    Verizon tech says password and all settings are correct.
    Outgoing server is designated as outgoing.verizon.net.
    If I set the outgoing server as smtp.gmail.com, it still says that outgoing.verizon.net cannot connect.
    (Same results with Thunderbird as with WLM.)
    Suggestions?

    I do not know about Verizon, but mine is set as smtp-server.rochester.rr.com I wonder if Verizon is similar. My incoming is pop-server.rochester.rr.com

    I just got an email a few days ago that says all ports for incoming and outgoing mail have changed. Incoming is "incoming.verizon.net" without the quotes. The port is 995. Outgoing is "outgoing.verizon.net", again without the quotes. The port is 465. According to the email it is for security reasons, and to thwart the SPAMers.
