Help required to send an email using evolution on trisquel

I have installed Trisquel from a magazine DVD. It has trashed my windows despite me selecting the install along side windows option. So onwards and upwards with Linux.

I am trying to get Evolution mail working with limited success. I can receive email but cannot send it. The request to connect to the smtp server times out. SMTP details are below :-

server type : smtp
ssl encryption

Please can somebody help as I do not know how to proceed. I have been surfing the webb for hours but no luck and I have tried many solutions.

I have about 2 hours linux experience, so if you need more info please ask and I will do my best to supply it.

Thanks in advance

webmail is your surest bet!
no software to install, works in minutes, etc ... for example can let you receive emails from your existing account
