Failure of Windows Livemail to SEND when PC is abroad.

I am using Windows Livemail on my HP Pavilion DM1. When I am out of the UK I can receive perfectly well but I cannot send. The only work round I've found is to go to the Virgin web site and send mail from there. What do I need to do? Any ideas? I'm not even sure whether this post will go through. I am posting this from Tenerife.

You need to change the smtp settings to those through how you are accessing the internet whilst overseas. Personally I prefer to use webmail whilst away as then I don't get this problem and do not have to change settings on return.

Thanks Woolwell but I don't suppose you know what the settings could be, do you?
