We have had no emails into our synced Freeserve account via outlook since 28th Oct. Does anyone else know what is happening?

I have switched to Sky Broadband. My email address is name.freeserve.co.uk
I can receive emails but cannot send.
I've changed various things but I'm going round in circles. Probably an easy fix but would appreciate some help. Thanks Ian.

I keep getting "can't connect to freeserve server" regardless of settings.

Is an fsnet.co.uk email address the same as freeserve? I can't seem to get it to work on outlook.

Many thanks

For two days, following a windows update, I am unable to send using my Freeserve accounts, receiving OK. changed o/g set up from smpt.freeserve.net port 587 to smpt.orange.net port 25 but still cannot send?
