If you can't send and/or receive using your email client such as Microsoft Outlook etc. do the following:         
Check the properties of the email account for the following:
Use your full email address as username (i.e., username@domain.com).
Make sure that "My Server Requires Authentication" is checked in your SMTP Properties.
Switch to a different port such as: 465 or 587 for SMTP Outgoing Server.
Make sure your Anti-Virus and/or Windows firewall are not blocking you from sending/receiving email.

Login to your control panel and remove any mail filter you might have. Remove and then re-install SpamAssassin (SA), if SA is enabled on the web server emails.
