I have been using WLM forever.  I do not log in to WLM, I use it strictly as a desktop email client. Lately, when sending emails, they are not sent immediately but end up in the Out Box.  They eventually get sent, maybe after 10 minutes, sometimes they are still siting there over night.

I do get the message: 

Your SMTP server has not responded on 120 seconds, Would you like to wait another 120 seconds for the server to respond?

        Server: smtp.telus.net     Wait      Stop

So I click on Wait and hope for the best.  I am not aware of any changes to WLM 2012.   I honestly suspect that the problem is not with WLM as it has served me well, but with my server.  So far getting any help from my server is like pulling teeth, but I shall persist.  I suspect they have made some changes which have caused the problem. Maybe not.

Any comments and/or suggestions would be welcome.
