    I recieve all of my emails without a problem, but for some reason I cannot
    send them. When I try to do so, an error shows in the send/recieve box that

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject '', Account:
    'pop-server.rochester.rr.com', Server: 'smtp-server.rochester.rr.com',
    Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number:

    Is there anything I can do about this?

    Are you connected to Roadrunner (at home) when you get this error?
    To use RR servers, you must be.

    No, I'm away at college, so I'm connected to the college server through my
    ethernet cable. I also use the wireless network here.

    So you can't use Roadrunner's servers to send email.
    You need to use either your college's server, or perhaps get a Gmail
    account, and use their server.
