I have been having a difficult time getting my laptop to send email when connected on WiFi. On wired Ethernet I have no problems. On WiFi I get the message Task 'email- Sending' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).' I get this message on every email account I have, and the email just sits in the OutBox.
After many exchanges with Microsoft, using msconfig I have booted initially just with Microsoft programs and then with increasing numbers of programs from other manufacturers. Got it down to Softbyte Network Services by Rivet Networks. Yes, Outlook can send emails if this programs is disabled from starting using msconfig.
Look for advice. And can I just uninstall Rivet networks product from my computer?
Thank you. This solved my problem too.
I have Rivet Dynamic Bandwidth Management and SmartByte Network Service disabled and YESSS everything worked as designed. Why put Dell not working software on my computer.
Good to see that someone has had the same experience.
Now it would be even better if Dell would step up and do something about it.
Or at least tell us why it's there and can I delete it from my computer. BTW, even thogh disabled at startup, I have seen it running and preventing emails at least once.
