Is there a problem with the server - error smtp server timing out - FIXED

As per the title
Edit - it only seems to be one mailbox which is affected
Task <snip> - Sending' reported error (0x8004210B) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
