Check your firewall? The only way that I could recreate your error was to
enter a non-existent host in MS Outlook Express:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The host 'Akiko' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered
the server name correctly. Account: 'SMTP Test', Server: 'Akiko', Protocol:
SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number:
0x800CCC0D
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sam Spade tells me that host "smtp.mts.net" exists. So it is either a local
DNS cache issue (Windows 2K and XP have local DNS caching, I believe), or a
firewall issue, which keeps MSOE from getting out. Or, maybe, DNS was FUBAR
when you tried to send, but is working now.

If I use a host that I know exists, and I can reach through port 25, but
does not use SSL (most hosts don't expect SSL on port 25), I get a "Host
doesn't accept SSL" error.

If I use a host that I know exists, but I can't reach through port 25 (my
ISP blocks outbound port 25), I get a "Connection failed" error.

Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It provides no
additional protection and even Symantec says it's not necessary:

<quote>
Disabling email protection does not leave you vulnerable to viruses and
malicious software in email. It is a separate layer of protection in
addition to Auto-Protect. Auto-Protect scans any incoming files, including
email, as they are saved to your hard drive. As long as you keep your virus
definitions up to date with LiveUpdate, and keep Auto-Protect enabled and
set to scan files as they are created or downloaded, your system is fully
protected.
