How to setup ms outlook 2007 at home pc

Hi
I am trying to setup ms outlook 2007 in my home pc. I can able to receive email but when I test account it is showing error message - "Send test e-mail message: Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP)."
Please can anyone tell me where is the problem.
thanks in advance

Try temporarily disabling your firewall and AV programs and see if the issue is resolved. You may also need to contact your ISP and see if they can confirm your settings for you...perhaps give you an alternate SMTP port number to use.

Depending upon your Internet Service Provider there will be different setups.  Each ISP has their own SMTP server which usually requires authentication.  Basically you would setup your email/password in the SMTP fields when setting up the account.  However you will need to contact your service provider to get the necessary information to complete the setup.

Who is your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and what are you using in the Outgoing Mail Server settings on the account?
Are you setting up POP3 email?

What is your Outgoing Mail Server currently set to and who is your ISP?

my outgoing mail server is mail.domain.co.uk.

Is that your mail server for your work domain, or the mail server for your ISP.  The default should be your ISP's mail server or failing that, you can usually use your Work's mail server as long as you turn on Outbound Authentication under More Settings, Outgoing Server.

Your ISP may be blocking SMTP traffic to anything other than their mail servers.
You can test access to your work mail servers using telnet:

Try connecting to your work's mail server and see if you get anywhere.  If you cannot, then your ISP are restricting you.  Change the outgoing mail server to theirs and try again without authentication.
Alternatively, if work have HTTP over RPC setup, you can use Cached Exchange Mode and bypass the SMTP issue totally.
