I have a problem with installed version (14.4.2 140509) of Mac Office 2011 Outlook running on iMac OSX 10.9.3:
1. Initially, about a month after installation, I found that I could not send outgoing emails (replies or new compositions) and that the outgoing emails simply disappeared--i.e. didn't appear in sent or outbox. The problem was intermittent and now is constant. When attempting to send an email I get error message alert-
-The server for account “Outlook” returned the error “4.7.0 Temporary server error. Please try again later.” Your username/password or security settings may be incorrect. Would you like to try re-entering your password?---Despite checking password and multiple tries, nothing works. NOTE that the application works at Outlook.com web version and also works if I use the Mac Mail application...
I tried changing port to 587 with 'override port checked
2. Now, when using the Send/Receive command on the ribbon, I get repeated Outlook alerts--
"An operation on the server timed out. The server may be down, overloaded, or there may be too much net traffic"
In Outlook prefs I have the info for account email and password (triple checked) for incoming port 993
Outgoing smtp.outlook.com port 25 (and tried 587)
checked boxes override and use SSL to connect
I see others on the site and a few others seem to have trouble with Outlook mail being sent without hangups--is there a systematic error that can be corrected?
Is there any assurance that a re-install from the CD with fix the problem?
Should I just revert to Outlook web?--that would seem like a waste of the installed software but could do it.
Thanks for any advice--I'm out of my depth with this one.
