Cable Modem and E-Mail Problem (unable to send).

I just purchased a Toshiba PCX2600 cable modem. I run Debian Sarge, 2.4.22-3 K7SMP all installed and running for 9+ months using a US Robotics Courier V Everything external modem. Okay, it obviously did allow me to connect to my ISP and send e-mail as well as all other usual web stuff. BUT, now I an unable to send e-mail. I certainly am able to 'surf', download and read mail, just not reply or send. Error message: "An error occurred while sending mail. mail server responded: not localhost, not a gateway. please check recipients and try again".
This is from within Mozilla 1.4, Mozilla 1.5, Opera 7.21 --------> this Linux box
same condition on Win.ME Mozilla 1.6, Opera.
Linux machine info.: AMD Atlon MP 2400+, 1g. ram, 36g Ultra SCSI Barracua hd.s (4 ea.), Debian Sarge, 2.4.22-3 K7 SMP, XiG Summit MX Accelerated X-Server. I did apt-get install dhcp-client lokkit gnome-lokkit. Then edit /etc/network/interface to add "auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp" , then issued: /etc/init.d/networking stop : /etc/init.d/networking start, read the setup log and launched out on the web. Everything else seems to work (well except for the lokkit finnish errors that seem to indicate that I do not have some modules loaded and therefore is not setting firewall rules to run. I dig into this next, after the e-mail problem is working), so can someone help me unravel what I need to do to fix this?
I should add that this cable modem is running on Charter Pipeline (I set up with them for the modem MAC before installing the moden and drivers in Win.ME) the Charter account for e-mail has not been setup in Mozilla mail, it still goes to my old dialup ISP pop and smtp settings. Thank you.
