Outlook recieves but won’t send emails (Vista)

One again, TONS of conflicting info out there!

Here’s what worked for me:

Simply changing the SMTP port from 25 to 587 fixed the problem.

In Outlook – Tools > Email Accounts > View or change existing account > Next > Change >More Settings > Advanced > change the SMTP port from 25 to 587 > Okay > Next > Finish

Worked on the first try.
