Restoring to an earlier time was a bit drastic. This error is usually where there is an issue with either you antivirus software or firewall. Try disabling them and see if your mail works then. If so, you need to identify the issue with the firewall/av software.

Try - Tools, Accounts, Properties, Servers tab, Settings

Settings should show "Use same settings as my server".

Thanks for the replies. I ended up ring Virgin, and, unusually, I got a rapid response which worked.
