You are trying to send your mail through another mailserver where you are not authorised for.
Set up your mail client to use the mailserver from your own ISP instead of using the wrong one.

yes, i agree with above.
let's say you have an isp at home, here are the example settings:
POP3 server: mail.mypop3server.com
SMTP server: mail.mysmtpserver.com
and let's say you are trying to get your email at the office. You've setup your email the same way as above. You can receive email fine, but you can't send any. This is because you are trying to 'relay' out thru the outgoing (SMTP) mail server...to fix, find out who the ISP is at the office, surf to their website, to the 'user help for configuring your account in your email' and find out the SMTP server name. Then fix your settings in your email client. Now it will look like this:
POP3 server: mail.mypop3server.com
SMTP server: mail.office.smtpserver.com
Then send yourself atest email to see if it works.
If you are on a network and using an inhouse mail server, it may be harder to determine the smtp srever name. you will need to ask your network admin. that is a courtesy in any case, as your net admin will surely wantto make sure your anti-virus protection and security patches are up to snuff...
Be sure you put anti-virus protection on your email client! And keep up your windows updates.

The status is : Answered!!! But you do note rate the solutions, and most of all you don't say what you are now using as a solution.
Give us an answer. Or at least the points if someone earned them
