Are you using authentication on your connection?  Did your internet provider change recently?  Is RR your internet provider?  Also see:

I assume your ISP is time warner?   Did they give you this SMTP server?  There are several in Southern Cali.  Can you ping it?   Can you telnet to it on port 25

@getzjd
Yes ISP is TimeWarner, I got the SMTP info from the web, yes I can ping, it resolves and is pingable and I can telnet into it on port 25 and I get the relay server responding

@javajws
no authentication used...this SMTP server is setup on the clients workstations (Outlook 2003) and it works correctly with no authentication...and it is port 587 if that matters...I did change 25 to 587 under the connector properties.

I gave up on the SMTP connector, just had the server send mail directly, It was using DNS servers that were no longer valid, setup the connectors for that and all is well...ill split the points just becuase you guys responded, i appreciate the help
