sending email error in evolution

Hi, I try to send email using evolution 2.2.....
Got error:

Error while performing operation.

RCPT TO <> failed: Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable.

Sending with other account is no problem. Receiving with this account is no problem. It asked password for smtp however.

What is the problem???

There is small probabliltiy (other than wrong emailbox ) that hotmail is blocking mail from a specific smtp server.
This is done sometimes to block isp's who host spammers and junk mailers. May be your ISP is one of those.

thry using a differenet smtp server .. (if you have a POP account and your ISP doesn;'t block port 25).
