Isn't Windows wonderful? - you don't even have to touch the PC and yet it does things for you.

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............
