OE6 receives mail but won't send ???

It's bizarre... my Outlook Express 6 receives email ok, but when I try to
send email I receive the following error message:
Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
inactivity. Account: 'mail.micronet.net.au', Server: 'mail.micronet.net.au',
Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

I have a broadband ISP connected via a LAN, which Explorer uses without
hassle, allowing me to surf the net. My incoming POP3 and outgoing SMTP
accounts are correct. I'm beat. Does anyone have any ideas why this weird
occurrence should happen and what I can do to fix it?

Thanks,
Paul.

Turn off email scanning in your anti-virus. It provides no added
protection.

Thanks Kath,
I have Nortons installed, and had tried disabling email scanning. But it
made no difference, and besides it was installed and running before OE went
haywire!
Cheers,
Paul

Your current Identity may have been damaged by NAV, especially if its the
default Main Identity. Try one or more of your accounts in a new Named
Identity (File>Identities>Add new identity). Assuming all is well, import
messages from the old Identity before deleting it (File>Identities>Manage
Identities).

To avoid such corruption in future:

Don't use Inbox or Sent Items to archive messages. Move them to local
folders created for this purpose.

Empty Deleted Items folder daily.

Disable Background Compacting [N/A in SP2] and frequently perform a manual
compact of all OE folders while "working offline". More at
http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/files/maintain.htm.

Your anti-virus application's email scanning feature can also cause such
corruption. Disable it. It provides no additional protection.
