sorry this went off without my explanation...I am in Thailand and on wifi in hotel. I am able to receive emails and also can surf but am unable to send or reply to emails and I get the above message. If I go to my webmail I can send.
I have windows vista and IE and mail server is demon....any ideas

I think the problem is the outgoing mail server. You say that it is Demon but surely that`s your UK ISP provider. Out in Thailand the ISP for your hotel will be different and you need to temporarily change the outgoing server to the appropriate one.

For example I use Pipex at home but at another location they use Plusnet. When I`m there my incoming (POP3) remains the same but the outgoing (SMTP) changes to relay.plus.net to enable sending of messages from Outlook.

You need to ask at the hotel if they can provide you with the SMTP settings and whether the outgoing server needs authentication. (The tick box below the SMTP settings)
