Try slingshots SMTP server with no authentication...

You need to have the SMTP server of the provider your currently connected to. So Slingshot SMTP when the PC is at a house with slingshot, Telecom, Vodafone ETC.

The Win 8 Mail app sucks for anything that isn't an Exchange or Outlook.com mailbox.

 

I would download Thunderbird and give that a go.

Thank you all for your help, much appreciated.

If you can login online your password is correct. Use the webmail and see if you can login. if you cant we would need to reset your mail profile. http://webmail.vodafone.co.nz

This is why I have advised to test using ' Thunderbird ' more than once

If the settings work in another email client then issue is not on Vodafone side
