    Double check that youve got the outgoing server and password set up correctly, check with your provider for the correct settings (they will be different to the incoming email settings)

    If you have set up a POP3 account, you have to make sure that you set up the incoming and outgoing servers. In many cases, the incoming settings are different than the outgoing settings.

    Your outbound settings aren't correct or your email provider isn't allowing you to use their SMTP server. Double check your settings. Verify with your email provider.

    It's not uncommon for ISP's to not allow the use of their SMTP server if not on their network as an anti-spam feature. Some mail providers allow the use of their SMTP server but require proper authentication.
