    We have recently changed broadband from tiscali to sky, we have a tiscali
    email address. I can receive emails but when I try and send an email I get
    the following error message:

    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
    this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
    inactivity. Subject 'Re: Under Water Photo Shoot', Account:
    'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Server: 'smtp.tiscali.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
    Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10053, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

    I have read some of the other comments posted but haven't been able to
    resolve the problem so far.

    Please can anyone help??

  2. Your error message doesn't reflect a typical port 25 block, but we
    should treat for it anyway.
    As a general rule, the owner of the SMTP server you are using must be the
    same as the entity providing your Internet connection at that moment.
    For more on this anti-spamming issue see
    http://www.postcastserver.com/help/Port_25_Blocking.aspx

    The best workaround for your situation is to substitute the SMTP server
    belonging to your connection provider, Sky. This is a bit tricky, but if
    you want to go that route, I can provide more details.
