O/S: WinXP Outlook2003
Several times per day I get the following error message: "Task " reported error (0x800ccc7D): Your outgoing (SMTP) server does not support SSL-secured connections. If SSL-secured connections have worked in the past, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP)."

This clears itself after awhile and everything is back to normal. What could be the cause of this intermittent error?

Thanks in advance.

Odd because G-Mail insists on using SSL. Under the Tools menu>E-Mail Accounts>View or change>Change>More Settings button>Advanced tab, are there ticks in the two SSL boxes and is the SMTP Port set to 995?
