Windows 7: Windows mail recieves but won't send ("Socket Error: 10060")

Windows mail recieves but won't send ("Socket Error: 10060")

I have a work issued laptop, with my work email set up through Windows Live Mail 2011. It works fine in the office, but for some reason, when I work from home, messages won't send over my wireless connection.

The "errors" I get are "Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E" and "Socket Error: 10060".

It's a standard Toshiba black laptop. The email is a Squirrel Mail account. And in properties, I have the "My server requires authentication" option checked.

Forgive me, but I'm not well-versed with the lingo. I do more with design and editing software. Again, it works fine with my internet connection at work, but not at home. So I wonder if it maybe has something to do with my home internet. Both are wireless. Home is DSL through AT&T.

Hopefully, I can get this fixed today, or I'll be forwarding emails through my personal account. Fun stuff.

Let me know if more details are needed. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
