smtp issue cannot connect to account blueyonder.co.uk

I have been trying to deal with this all day but with no luck

 

if I log in to webmail on my laptop it sends mail but on my laptop (MacBook Air) it says cannot connect to account blueyonder.co.uk 

I've double-checked and taken out smtp settings and re put them in but still no luck.

 

I feel like I'm pulling my hair out now.

 

please help

Re: smtp issue cannot connect to account blueyonder.co.uk

To determine what, if any, error code is being returned by the SMTP server open a Terminal and enter the following commands:

export HISTCONTROL=ignorespace
curl -v smtps://smtp.virginmedia.com -u username:password 2>&1 | grep "235\|VM"​

where username:password is replaced with your email address and password, for example richard.branson@virginmedia.com:Y54kpX5g
 
Post the result after making any necessary redactions here,

Re: smtp issue cannot connect to account blueyonder.co.uk

many thanks I have done this and it tells me my credentials are invalid

535 5.7.8 Authentication Credentials Invalid (VM300)

 

although I  changed the password in webmail on virgin media and changed them on computer I get emails coming in on my phone still but nothing on the computer at all.
