It can receive messages just fine, but every time I try to send a message, I get an error message that says "Outlook cannot connect to the server. Verify that your computer is connected to the network." I'm connected to the internet for sure, so I don't know why it's struggling to connect.

I have the incoming server listed as smtp.gmail.com & the outgoing server also listed as smtp.gmail.com. Not sure what either of those mean but that may be the problem.

Thanks!
