Anyone using Outlook.com SMTP service and having issues?

    I used to use Google Apps for all of my domains, but they don't offer the free service any more, so I switched to outlook for my newest forum project. I'm trying to send mail by connecting to smtp.live.com, tls, 587 and I'm getting the errors below.

    This config was working before, but recently stopped. I tried ssl/465 also and it gives me the same errors. When I send a "test" email to myself, it says it sends, but I don't get anything in my inbox. Also, I am sending mail through this account just fine via gmail with an smtp connection to this live.com account, so it doesn't sound like live.com is the problem.

    I've seen this error talked about a bunch of this board and tried the suggested solutions, but none seem to work. Anyone else have this issue and get it resolved? I'm hosting with Namecheap on a VPS.

    Does this sound like a server issue, or does it have to do with Xenforo?

    This might help:

    There are also reports of this being caused by a faulty OpenSSL library in PHP. Your host or server person should try patching that library. Example:

    got it! I will contact my host and ask them to do that.
