Recently bought new computer and set up Outlook Express as email. Am receiving email fine, but when sending an email I get the following message:

The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. Acct:pop.embarqmail.com', server:'smtp.embarqmail.com', protocol:smtp. Server Response: '554 Authentication Failed, must login'. Port 25, Secure (SSL): No, Server Error: 554, error number 0x800CCC79.

Anyone have an idea, please?
