Who is your ISP? Is your Outlook Express correctly configured? Make sure your servers are correctly defined, ie for Comcast it might use mail.comcast.net for incoming, and smtp.comcast.net for sending. Your ISP has these server names they can give you.

You did not mention whether you were using antivirus software to send or receive filtered e-mail. I tried looking up your error code-and one common theme I saw was that you should turn it off. It causes problems and does no real good since the high end viruses just send directly from their own code.
However, another thing I saw was that people had errors in their setup.
You imply that this used to work and stopped suddenly. You might still try deleting the mail destination and then re-adding it, insuring that your userid and password are specified correctly, and that you have not inserted any extra spaces, capitalized when you should not, etc.
Finally, open a command line and then enter the command:
telnet yousmtpserver.net 25
where you type the name of your smtp server as specified in your isp's connection stuff.
This to test the ability to reach your ISP's smtp server. See, some ISPs block outbound connections to port 25 - to stop spambots from sending from people's home computer. If it turns out that you can't connect to port 25 on your mail provider's smtp server, sometimes they have an alternate port that you can use. By default the "submission port" (which is only supposed to be used by customers inserting mail initially) is 587, while 25 can be used as a submission port or it can be used by another ISP as they transfer mail to you. So you could try telnetting to port 587 or you could try just specifying 587. But first turn off your anti-virus outbound mail filtering and see if that helps.
