I had much the same thing until I played around with the ports and with the 
security settings -  i.e. whether the server requires encryption and what 
authentication method. Clicking to check what the server required - which 
sounds like a pretty sound notion - didn't help at all (!) so I had to try 
out different combinations till I found one that did work. If it's of any 
help my smtp now works perfectly with no encryption and LOGIN authentication. 
The port I'm using is 587.
