Sends nothing; Opera Mail oblivious of attempts

  • ( Receiving is splendid.)

    Standalone PC, Win10 stock Defender firewall explicitly ruled to allow Opera.

    Composed msg content is brief text, typed.
    Known good recipient addresses, one per attempt.
    Outbox never has contained anything.

    IMAP
    smtp-mail.outlook.com
    tried ports 25, 587, 465
    secure connection TLS
    authentication tried Auto and AUTH PLAIN
    tried queued and unqueued

    Outgoing Log File=etc, etc. produces no file.

  • I think the outgoing servername is incorrect. I use smtp.outlook.com with Opera Mail and it sends fine...

  • smtp-mail.outlook.com + port 587 + TLS checked (which will use StartTLS in this case) should work fine (and does for me in Opera Mail).

    @grass said in Sends nothing; Opera Mail oblivious of attempts:

    Outgoing Log File=etc, etc. produces no file.

    If no log is produced, that usually means that Opera Mail didn't even get to the point of trying to establish a connection.

    Do you have your email address set in the "mail address" field on the general tab in the account's properties?
