The SMTP server is too busy. It is down. It is unreachable through the
current route of hosts to get at it. Or you didn't give the correct
hostname for the SMTP mail server.

Can you telnet to the SMTP mail host? In a command shell, run the command:

telnet <smtphost> <port>

where <smtphost> is the IP name of the mail server and <port> could be 25 or
587 depending on what your unidentified e-mail provider told you to use.
That would determine if you can reach the mail host and if it is responding
to connection requests. If it connects, you should see a 1-line welcome
message on the telnet connection (just enter "quit" to abort the session).

So just who is your ISP? Are you using their on-domain SMTP server or are
you trying to access an off-domain SMTP server?

Do you have your anti-virus software enabled to perform e-mail scanning?
See what happens if you disable that superfluous function.
