Can't send email through craigslist - Windows Mail problem

I am using Vista Home Premium laptop and Windows Live Mail as my default client. I installed live mail just two days ago, earlier I was using Windows Mail but as it was creating many problems because of Norton Antivirus on my system, I quit it and started using Live Mail.

The problem am facing is when I try sending any email, it wont get send and instead I get this error:

The host 'smtp.gmail.net.om' could not be found. Please verify that you haveentered the server name correctly.
Subject 'Bose Quiet Comfort 2 Headphones - Brand New - $225 (Parker, CO)',
Account: 'Gmail', Server: 'smtp.gmail.net.om', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D


Im not sure if my settings are incorrect, you can just confirm the same here:

Gmail:
My incoming mail server is a 'IMAP' server
Incoming mail (IMAP) : imap.gmail.com
Outgoing mail (SMTP) : smtp.gmail.com

Hotmail:
My incoming mail server is a 'POP3' server
Incoming mail (POP3) : pop3.hotmail.com
Outgoing mail (SMTP) : smtp.hotmail.com

I using this laptop on WiFi zone, so there is no specific ISP for me hence I dont think the problem would be from there end. Can you guys tell me what is the problem with Live Mail?

As far as Hotmail is concerned, I think Hotmail wont provide POP access without extra charges. Actually you need to be a Hotmail Plus user to get POP3. Now talking about Gmail, they do provided pop3 and imap both for free but I guess there would be some problem in the settings due to which you are getting the problem. Hence will suggest you to check the Google support page for Imap and POP3 settings and reconfigure it again.

The very first think you need to check is ensure email scanning if off in Norton Settings. If it is enabled, that could be the cause of the problem.

And second, whenever you use WiFi, you often need to avoid using any connection method that uses port 25. The reason behind it is because connections to this port get blocked when you roam from one ISP to another.
