  2. Are you connected to the Internet via when trying to send?

    Some ISPs block access to other SMTP mail servers while connected via
    them. (They block TCP/IP port 25 except to their own SMTP mail server.)
    Some of these ISPs will make exceptions if you present a compelling
    reason to do this. The error messages may indicate network is
    unreachable, access denied, or timeout errors (socket errors 10051,
    10061 and 10060.) Another workaround for this is to use the SMTP mail
    server of the service that you connect via, but leave your other
    settings the same. In some cases you can use Port 587 or 465 rather
    than port 25 (specify in OE/WLM at Tools, Accounts, Mail, Properties,
    Advanced). Your ISP is more likely to allow this port. The SMTP mail
    server has to support this port. SMTP Authentication will likely be
    required. In OE/WLM this is specified in Tools, Accounts, Mail,
    Properties, Servers, Outgoing Mail Server, My Server Requires
