Windows did it's automatic updates and now I get this error when tring to send an email "Sending of message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to SMTP server smtp.live.com timed out. Try again or contact your network administrator".

This server worked for me yesterday, it works if I use my webmail. I have tried other email servers and other email accounts with the same result.

When this happened a few days ago I went back to the last restore point and all was fine, now Windows has updated again the problem has come back.

Does anyone know what is wrong?

I'm afraid we won't be able to help you much, this sounds like it is an issue with live (The service behind hotmail, live and outlook, all owned by Microsoft). You can try the steps at Websites look wrong or appear differently than they should, which may help, but you'll be better off contacting Live's support staff.

Is this a problem with Thunderbird?

If that is the case then we can move the question the Thunderbird support.
