Email won't send

Hi all,


I have just purchased a new MacBook Pro and have installed Outlook. I have added my optus mail POP account and can access mail and download but cannot send any emails and am getting the below error message. I have tried several different servers that I found via google seraches to no avail. Current settings:

Incoming server: 995

Outgoing Server: 465


The server for account returned the eroor [IN-USE] account is temporarily unavailable.


Can anyone help please?


Thank you in advance.
