cant send emails from windows mail

Thanks to the volcano I am stuck in a Los Angeles hotel until 27th April
Thankfully they have free wifi
I receive all my emails without problem but cant send any
It appears that my windows mail cant communicate with the smtp server
I use gmx for email and have to go online to send which isnt so convenient, especially when I need to forward an email with attachments.
I have checked the gmx settings and cant find anything to make a difference
I tried opera and Thunderbird but they wont send either
The error message I'm getting says
"The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Fw: Urgent Notice: Paypal Limited', Account: '**********@gmx.co.uk', Server: 'mail.gmx.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"
Could anyone please advise
Thanks

Re: cant send emails from windows mail

Have you tried using webmail for sending, gmx must have a web interface?
Or turn on SSL for sending and use port 587.
I expect port 25 is blocked unless you use their own SMTP server.
