Which mail client are you using?
Is the smtp server correct?
Did you changed the name of your computer? ?

As repo mentioned you need to supply us with more information. with the info that was given we have absolutly nothing to work with. Some things to try also would be to ping the smtp and pop server. Also double check the email address that you setup with your acount and the username that you setup.
