FREENETNAME outgoing email has stopped working Oct 2020
Outgoing e-mails failed at start of October 2020; my last e-mail send was on 30 Sept
Incoming e-mails are still fine, but outgoing e-mails now come back with "Your email server rejected your login".
I'm using Outlook & Win10 and the settings on the account still has the SMTP server set to smtpmail.freenetname.co.uk, the outgoing mail is still set as "My outgoing server (smtp) requires authentication" and "Use same settings as my incoming email server".
I have tried deleting the outlook account and recreated it but the "Test account settings" says POP3 incoming is fine but for outgoing it comes back with "Your email server rejected your login".

A warm welcome to the forums.
The fact that you can still receive emails points away from your password being wrong or having been changed to address security issues (the email account having been compromised). Given that this is a legacy email account, there is a fair possibility that you are not using Plusnet as your ISP and that your current IP address is suspect.
Email clients are usually not very good at discerning the reason for connections to SMTP severs being rejected. The following will enable you to obtain a much clearer insight as to why the connection is being rejected.
