Could not connect to this SMTP server. - Mac Mail 2.1

I have been using my plus net address for years and now after transferring to a mac, I suddenly receive the message below when I try to send mail. :roll:

Could not connect to this SMTP server. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the account preferences. Also verify that the server accepts connections on port 587. If it does not,, change the port number in the advanced tab of the account preferences.


These are my current settings;

Account type: POP
ISP: Plus net
Incoming mail server: mail.plus.net
Outgoing server: relay.plus.net (server port automatically populates 587)

Advanced section
Port 110 use SSL (is unticked)



Thanks

Try setting the port for "relay.plus.net" to 25
