Are there any errors in your mail log when this happens?
What's the output of
Code:
netstat -tap
?

What's the output of
Code:
iptables -L
? Did you disable AppArmor?

Does mail.mydomain.com point to the correct server? You can check that by running
Code:
dig mail.mydomain.com

Could it maybe be a problem with your Windows firewall blocking coonnections? Because if there's nothing in the logs, this means that the Windows system doesn't even try to connect...

No windows firelwall is not blocking, computer still cannot send email.....iPHONE sends without any problems....
Dunno is there maybe the way my ispconfig only accepts one computer/ip/mac per email? or my isp doing some weird thing?

That is NOT a problem with your mail server, it is a problem with your windows machine blocking the connection to the mail server, either your windows firewall or some kind of anti virus program that scans out bound email is what is causing the issue.

I know falko has already told you this and you do not want to believe him if you still do not believe then search google for the meaning of outlook error 0x800CCC0E
