Try setting your username to just the username part; not including the @domain.

What kind of mail server are you on?

I tried your advice and the old error gone :) but now i got another error, and i think its related to server if i'm not mistaken.

Could not connect - Transaction failed. The server response was: Sending address not accepted due to spam filter

My mail server is (SmarterMail Enterprise 6.8).

Is there anyway to configuer my mail server setting to six this problem?

I'm working with (SmarterMail Enterprise 6.8) with this configs and everything working well.

Try to put the IP of your Email server with port 26 , other than this check with your hosting company if they have offline time for Mail server or doing any maintenance [this happend with me before :) ].

I've tried to look for the IP of mu email server but i wasn't able to find it.

I think you can find it in your control panel or  ping your mail.mydomain.com to get the IP
