cwwriting,

Are you trying to use the same email settings as you use at work?  At home are you actually connecting to the work network in something like a VPN or are you just connecting to an Internet provider?

The reason for the questions above is you are probably trying to use your work settings and just connected to the Internet when you are at home.  The SMTP server (for outgoing email messages) that you use at work is probably not allowing messages to be "forwarded" or requires a login.  In other words the work email server recognizes that you are not connected to the work network and won't let you use it to send messages.  To test this try changing the setting for SMTP server to the one your home Internet provider gave to you.

cwwriting,

Your welcome!  Glad I could help and that you are working.  That type of blocking is becoming even more common as ISP's try to stop spam and the zombies that send it.
