Default Read but not send mail

Hi,
This was originally posted alongside an ftp log-in problem ' cause i thought they might be related.

The mail client - Thunderbird - gives error that the SMTP server is rejecting the log-in and asks for username and password repeatedly.

The mail log contains:

The same username/password is used for both read and send.

I have tried it with both Plain and TLS authentication - both give the same result.

Any thoughts?

Thank you
