    Is there a valid and active internet connection? Who are you using to send your e-mail, your ISP, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo.. or some other. Has anything changed recently on your PC? Sound like you may have some corrupt network settings or bad connection.

    Guessing this error is related to MS Out Look. If this is the case, you have to repair OL profile right now.

    To solve this problem you need to verify account setting for assigned email servers. The correct setting is mail.yourdomainname.ext 
    To start the verification of Internet E-mail account follow the given steps: 
    Start Your mail program (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc).
    On the Tools menu, click Accounts/Account Settings, etc.
    Click the name of your e-mail account, and then click Properties or Change.
    On the General tab, verify that your e-mail address is correct.
    On the Servers tab, verify that the e-mail server information is correct for both the incoming mail (POP3) and outgoing mail (SMTP) servers. Verify that both servers have the correct settings for your password and account name. Make sure "outgoing mail server requires authentication" is checked.
    On the Connection tab, verify that the connection that you use is correct. For example, you may connect through a LAN or through a dial-up connection. Without a valid connection, your email program cannot communicate with the email servers.
    On the Advanced tab, verify that your server ports are correct. POP3 servers use port 110 and SMTP servers use port 25 or 465. Verify that these ports are correct.
    Click OK, and then click Close to save any changes.
    Retry.
