Generally speaking:

If you could send email in the recent past through the same account and have not knowingly made any changes to the account, it is most likely an ISP issue and will disappear soon enough. Nearly all ISPs have periodic email issues, server failures, ongoing maintenance, etc and typically do not advise their customers.

If it persists for several hours or overnight, then I would call their customer support.

If it persists and the ISP cannot help you, then it becomes more problematic and points to something within your own walls.

If I understand you correctly, you have NEVER been able to send mail through either Outlook or Windows Mail and that the only way you have ever been able to send mail is through the Orange website.

Is that correct?

Do you have any reason to believe that you have Windows Mail configured correctly? I am guessing you don't if you have NEVER sent email through it?
