    Hey there,

    A few things to consider.

    For one, is your SMTP password ok? You should maybe consider resetting the password to be 100% sure. Your SMTP server requires authentication. :)

    Secondly, has your ISP started filtering port 25 for SMTP? Many a large ISP are now following this practice and many have been late in adopting the practice. If this is the case, within your WHM, click on Service Configuration -> Service Manager and then scroll to the bottom and choose the Exim on another port option and check both boxes. Click Save when you're done.

    Then, configure Outlook to send to the SMTP on port 26 instead of 25. Of course, I am only assuming you will use 26 when configuring the Exim on another port option. :) If not, use the port you choose. :)

    Let me know if this helps you at all.

    Warmest regards,
