EmailTray says it can't reach internet

Hi, I created an account with EmailTray two weeks ago and it's been working fine. Today it says it can't reach the internet, although I have no trouble with outlook emails, browsers or FTP. I can reach the internet on all.

The only settings it lets me look at are these:
settings
Any ideas? Thanks.

The settings which you use in your pop3 account...There must be a SMTP server for the account conveyed to you by your hosting company. Just send that URL (smtp.yourdomain.com) to your ISP and request for whitelisting of it.

Did you recently install new or up your anti-malware program?  many of then install a POP3 proxy service that could keep this from working.

Hi,

Check your Windows Firewall settings. Temporarily turning OFF anti-virus and windows firewall can further diagnose the issue. What is the result of above picture if you say enable "Automatic detect Proxy settings"

Also at times SMTP servers get blocked by ISPs. Did you check if your SMTP server is allowed by them.

A little later in the day it started being able to get to the internet again, I hadn't made any changes.

could be issue with your smtp server configured with your pop3 account. Get it whitelisted by your ISP to avoid any such disruptions.

In answer to your questions:

1. No, had not made any changes to anti-malware
2. I had tried "enable anti-proxy settings, that also didn't allow internet access at that time,
3. I did not check if the smtp server was allowed by my ISP.
