Hi there,

What client are you using to collect your email?

The error message which you have posted seems to be using Port 23226 as opposed to 25.

Have you altered anything recently within your mail client?

Hi,

Port: 23226


I think that's the culprit, the port should be 25, unless you have antivirus/spam/firewall software set up which has changed it.

Bingo!
That has worked, I changed the port to 25 and that has solved the problem, I'll remember that for future reference, thank you.

Have you managed to fathom out why it was different?

Is there a program we should be on the lookout for which has changed the port, or is it one for the file marked 'one of those things'?
