The 127.0.0.1 in the error message suggests that O/E is trying to use a proxy server.
Are you using any anti-spam software?
You could try setting up the account again from OE.

127.0.0.1 is a loopback network connection.

This address connects to your own machine!

Can you check if your connection is set to connect through a proxy server.

Further to the posting by VoG, look in Internet Explorer > Internet Options >
Connections tab > Settings ( next to Dial up and virtual private network settings)and see if the box for Proxy Server is checked.
If you don't use a proxy server this should be unchecked.

The way to set up a new account is given below but check the proxy setting first.

Sorry for not answering. I have 'flu and it isn't nice.
Don't quite follow when you say the ntl mail has gone off.
Can you send and receive ntl mail through OE?
Am going to have to retire for the night = perhaps others will be able to help further.
