Normally my Outlook emails work perfectly when I am at home

Resolved Question:

Normally my Outlook emails work perfectly when I am at home in London. However, on holiday in Wales I cannot send emails - receiving is fine. The guilty server is smtp.virginmedia.com, but Virgin claim this is an Outlook problem, not one they can resolve. Can you help?

Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Is there any error or message?

Does your email address end with @virginmedia.com or @virgin.net, etc.?

What's the port number and security option, if any, for the Outgoing / SMTP option you use in Outlook?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, 10?
Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Hi - message just says "cannot send message using the server smtp.virginmedia.com***@******.***". Then it simply tells me the connection failed and offers various options like "try later, edit, edit smtp server list". It also offers a "connection doctor" which is no help!
My email address ends with @virginmedia.com.
No idea what the port number is, nor whether there is a security option. But I don't ever recall applying for one.
I'm ashamed to say, being an ancient Briton, I don't know which version of windows I have. Is there a windows 11?
