    I can send email at work, but am having trouble sending messages from home. This is a new problem- I have been sending emails from my home account for years. This is the message that comes up in the window of the message I am trying to send:
    "The server “” refused to allow a connection on the default ports."

    It also shows that it's offline on the server list? Any suggestions on what I can do?

    It could be that your ISP is blocking all SMTP server's except their own.

    Another possibility is that the vaxxine smtp server requires you to be connected to the work network connection, another security measure being adopted by companies to improve corporate security.

    It could just be a server error and will be fixed in the next few days. Call up your provider.
