Description of Problem
After upgrading to Windows 10, Outlook 2013 can no longer send out emails. The email stay in your Outbox and the following error is displayed.
Error 0x800CCC13 Cannot connect to the network
(For some reason doing a test Send & Receive from the Outlook Account Settings screen still works!!… but most real emails will not go out).
It appears that (on some computers) the upgrade to Windows 10 corrupts a few settings files that are used by Outlook. You can use the following steps to fix the problem.
In the Windows Search Bar, type CMD. You should now see Command Prompt displayed in the search results.
Right Click and click Run as Administrator. A command prompt (C:\<some_path>\> will be displayed.
Type SFC /scannow and press enter.
The scan will take some time to run but once it is done you should find that your emails start working again.
