I am still investigating what I can say that is useful about the error reported by Richard when checking for new mail.

As for sending email, I had success using gnutls-cli from Cygwin, together with the smtp package in Emacs 24.2 on a laptop running Windows XP Home. I am using the win32 version of emacs (version is reported as "GNU Emacs 24.2.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2012-08-28 on MARVIN"). I'll provide more details in a later message.

Apparently, there is an outstanding bug report about this.

Perhaps some earlier version of VM works.  Alan, can you provide any info
about this?

and other errors when sending:

      gnutls.c: [1] (Emacs) GnuTLS library not found

First of all, I can't see why you need GnuTLS for sending mail.  I have
never used it for mail sending.  Secondly, if you haven't installed GnuTLS
libraries (which is how ssl gets "built into" Emacs 24), then you need
install the libraries.  Eli Zaretski has provided his version of this
library and others at:

This GnuTLS doesn't work perfectly, but it does the job.
