How to configure your email client
This guide will teach you how to set up your email client. In this guide we will cover both Outlook and
Windows Live mail, which are two of the major email clients used these days.
You will find an section at the end of this document for common error messages.
NB: For the examples given below we have used a sample domain (stmkr.net). Please use your own domain name
when setting up your email client. The settings apply to all other email clients, and the configuration should be
very similar to the one described in this document.

Common error messages
Please note that the error messages in Outlook and Windows Live Mail use the same error codes.
•
error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues,
contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
This error is usually seen when you entered an invalid user name or password for the SMTP server
authentication. To solve this problem, refer to the section 6 of the Outlook guide and to the section 2
and 3 of the Windows Live Mail guide.
•
error (0x800CCC92) : 'Your email server rejected your login. Verify your user name and
password in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server responded:
-ERR Authentication failed.'
This error is usually seen when you entered an invalid user name or password for the POP server
authentication. To solve this problem, refer to the section 4 of the Outlook guide and to the section 2
and 3 of the Windows Live Mail guide.

•
error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you
continue to receive this message, contact your server Administrator or Internet service provider
(ISP).'
•
error (0x80042109): 'Outlook is unable to connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you
continue to receive this message, contact your server Administrator or Internet service provider
(ISP).'
Both of these error messages can appear when using an incorrect port, respectively for incoming and
outgoing servers. To solve these problems, check the ports as explained in the section 7 of the Outlook
guide and in the section 3 of the Winows Live Mail guide.
Important:
The error (0x80042109) (unable to connect to the (SMTP) e-mail server) can also appear when the ISP
blocks the port 25. This is a common problem for many Internet service providers.
If you are using the port 25 and are still getting this error message, you will have to contact your ISP in
order to find a solution. In most of these cases you will be asked to use their own SMTP server instead
of yours.

•
error (0x800CCC18): 'Your e-mail server rejected your login with Secure Password
Authentication. Verify your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts.'
This error occurs when you try to use Secure Password Authentication (SPA). To solve this problem,
simply untick the SPA box, as explained in the section 4 of the Outlook guide. For Windows Live Mail,
make sure that you are using 'Clear text authentication' as explained in the section 3 of the Winows
Live Mail guide.
