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.

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
