cant send email on orangehome

I suddenly find I can still send email on my blueyonder address, but not on my orangehome address.

I can receive emails on both.

 

ERROR MESSAGE

The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account: 'pop.orangehome.co.uk', Server: 'smtp.orangehome.co.uk', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

 

I have tried some different Ports but with no effect.

Re: cant send email on orangehome

many isp block access to there smtp from other networks to help prevent abuse. it might be due to the fact your not on a orange network that you can not send though there server

Spot on.

 

It's not clear if the original poster is on a computer or smartphone, but if its the former, just changing the outgoing smtp server setting on the Orange email account to that of a Virgin Media one should aloow emails to be sent......I think.

Hello

 

From your description it looks like orange dont allow you to send when your off their network.
