Windows 10: Microsoft Outlook 2003 - Can't sent email
Microsoft Outlook 2003 - Can't sent email
I know this is an old version but it suits me & has previously worked on previous builds but not 10240 or the official upgrade installed from Windows 7 Pro.

Thanks. However, I tried it by deleting all accounts & just adding 1 with same result i.e. Test Message sent OK but can't send separate email.
Even tried setting compatibility mode to Windows 7 with no success.
I had exactly the same issue and resolved it by running "sfc /scannow" (without quote marks) from the Command Prompt (Admin). It took a while to run, and found a few corrupted files which it repaired. I then re-started the pc, and Outlook now behaves as it should.
Hopefully this will also work for you.

An old program which Microsoft states has compatibility issues, but it does work except when inserting a url link by trying to open a folder to select the destination.
