It seems likely that whatever internet provicer you are using in South Africa is blocking port 25, the outgoing port for email (called the smtp port).   A lot of providers block this port to help combat the sending of spam.

Can you check with your ISP at home/office if there are alternate SMTP ports that you could use to connect to their sever?  If there are, you can easily change the ports in outlook.  If not, you'l either need to use the South African provider's SMTP server or find another provider with an SMTP server that you can use that doesn't use port 25.

Hope this helps.
