cannot send mail using windows mail (pop.gmail.com/smtp.gmail.com)

I am trying to send email from my Windows Mail account, which is connected to pop.gmail.com (incoming) and smtp.gmail.com (outgoing). I have checked and double-checked all the account settings against Windows' recommendations, and Gmail's recommendations. Yet my mail will not send, and I continue to get this message:
 
An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'XX', Account: 'pop.gmail.com', Server: 'smtp.gmail.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 465, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0B
 
Please help!!!

I have fixed my problem, but have another question. 0x800CCC0B apparently means the server is busy. I was trying to send a press release to maybe 150 addresses. I got rid of this message, and just sent an email to one address, and that worked.
 
New question: How do I send bulk emails on pop.gmail.com/smtp.gmail.com from Windows Mail? Am I better off just sending from Gmail (but I like the address book feature of Windows Mail much better)? Is there a way to make Windows Mail faster? Is the imap.gmail.com connection better??????
 
Thanks!

Patience, for the first problem.
 
And, someone advised me that there is a max. number of emails to be sent bulk, and I was exceeding that. So I divided my mailing list alphabetically, and sent smaller bulk mail emails.

I too could receive but  not send email (got the following error message with Outlook 6):
 
An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'XX', Account: 'pop.gmail.com', Server: 'smtp.gmail.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 465, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0B
 
I clicked on:
 
... "Tools"...
..."Accounts"...
... the "Mail" tab...
... selected "pop.gmail.com" by clicking on it once...
... clicked the "Properties" button...
... clicked the "Servers" tab...
... made sure that there IS a checkmark in the box labelled "my server requires authentication"... 
... then I clicked on the "Settings" button, where I saw 2 choices:
 
The first one was already selected (it said, "Use the same setting as my incoming mail server")... so I chose the other one that says "Log on using (account name / password)" and I put in my gmail email address and gmail email password
 
I also put a checkmark in the box that says "Remember my password" (you may not want to put a check mark there if you share your computer).
 
I have NO check mark in the box that says "Log on using secure authentication"
 
And VOILA!    I could SEND gmail email... yipee yahoo!
