Finally got my talktalk broadband working, then eventually went wireless, but since getting the wifi working I can not send e-mails from outlook unless they are a one liner, nor can I send attachments with my internet e-mail - they just won't upload !
2 steps forward, 1 step back again !
Any help appreciated as usual.

Check in your e-mail account(s), presuming you run Outlook Express, from Tools>Accounts>Connection tab that your wireless network is the Default connection source to send and receive mail.

Should read:

Stuarti - it reads Local area network (I think) but I'm at work now and cannot be sure. However it has successfully sent a couple of 1 line test e-mails and it is receiving just fine.

The message that I get when I try to send is either:
"server unexpectedly terminated connection"
OR
"unknown error - server response too many connections from your host"

Does this help clarify the problem - frankly I'm lost !

maybe a silly question but are you connected with both ethernet and wireless to your router

^wave^ - no only through the wireless. Somebody at work has suggested that it may be the firewall and security built into the router which is an old BT Intelligent Gateway 1800 (2wire)
