I have used Zone Alarm (free) for years with no problem. I tried the free trial of Zone Alarm Security Suite recently, and everything slowed to a crawl. So I tried uninstalling it, and now I can't send emails either from Outlook (2007) or Windows Mail (I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium). I can receive emails ok. I've checked with my ISP and gone through all the set up procedures for both Outlook and Windows Mail step-by-step with them, and they assure me that I have all the options set correctly. Their conclusion is that uninstalling Zone Alarm SS has somehow stuffed things up. Any suggestions how to fix them up?
The error message I get when trying to send an email from Outlook is: 'Sending reported error (0x80042109): Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server.'
