It could be a number of things including the possibility that your server is temporarily down.  Have you cleared your cache?  What port are you using for smtp and do you have SSL on?

This clickable link contains the recommended settings for most email clients- Scroll down to find your version of Outlook and compare your settings againest those.  LINK

Let us know the results of checking your port settings.

I just started getting the same error.  My SMTP is set to port 25, no SSL.  Server time out is set to 1 minute.  Any luck figuring out what might be happening?  It's been going on for a coupe of days now so I hope it isn't that the server is down.

Please refer to the e-mail client settings detailed in this post and adjust your settings as necessary.
