Check for Internet connection
You would make sure that the system is connected to Internet. In order to test that, firstly take the Internet Explorer. In that you would type the address of a website. If no connection is there, you would get the network connection error. You would also try to run the Network Diagnostic tool. You could do this by clicking the option called Diagnose Connection Problems link. It would give the cause of issue and would try to solve that. If that does not solve the problem, you need to check the connections in modem, router and cable connections.
Set TCP/IP as default Internet protocol

You would then right click connection and need to click Properties. Then in the General tab, you would make sure that the check box for Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is selected. If not, you would click OK. Then you would click Yes, if you are prompted for a restart. Next you would use Microsoft Outlook to send the mail yourself. If you receive the mail the problem might be solved.
You need to check the antivirus program present in the system. You would then go to the Preferences tab. You would verify that program is not being configured to block outgoing or incoming e-mail. You would temporarily disable antivirus program in order to do the testing process. You would try to send e-mail. If you could, make sure that antivirus is making the issue.
