Hello kinu85,

A few things to try:

1) Check with your web host and see if they require smtp authentication on outgoing mail server - then make sure you have the settings they recommend
2) check with your ISP and ensure that they allow relaying through port 25 - if they do not, you cannot use your ISP to send mail via a 3rd party mail server (ie your host) - if this is the case, ask your ISP for their outgoing mail server info and simply use this information in your mail client vs your hosts info.

Hope this helps...
