I have a similar, sporadic, fault, when trying to connect to ISP. If I
disable ZoneAlarm, connect, then re enable, it carries on OK thereafter.
Well, until the next time it goes ape.
It worked but why it happened in the first place is obviously an oddity.
I get something similar from time to time - I suddenly find I can't connect to MCB. The problem is resolved by going into Internet Options in the Connections tab and clicking on "Always Dial my default connection". For some reason, every now and again, this switches itself to "Never Dial a Connection". I've never found out why yet..

The ISP's Tech Dept helped me get out of the hole. Advice was "It looks as if your mail client is set to use a username and password for authentication for sending emails. In tools > account settings there should be an option to turn it off for outgoing server." Eventually found and unticked the box and, if this gets to the list, it's worked. BUT; since I have never visited that page, how did my system get the setting changed, during the course of yesterday evening?
Incidentally, Avast sent me a couple of virus attack warnings, after the email problem started. I'm quite impressed by Avast.
If you don't receive this message, no doubt you'll let me know............
