Which ISP are you using to send the mail ie Freeserve, Tiscali ?
What error message, if any, do you get when you try to send a mail?

It seems that the error is

12029 A connection with the server could not be established.

It could be your local Hotmail server, though it wouldn't do any harm to check your settings.
