I'll need more info to be sure but first I would ask if you set up your SMTP server? Are you trying to use this with Exchange, IMAP or POP? Are you trying to use this with a service like Gmail or Yahoo mail? Do you have a firewall? There are really a lot of reasons that this would happen so it would be hard to help you without more information.
I would suggest if you are not totally married to that address to sign up for a Gmail or Yahoo account. I use Gmail and configuration for this sort of thing is quite easy and they have step by step instructions.
