Seems to be a Slingshot problem, but if you put in your Slingshot username under Tools, Account Settings, Outgoing Server (SMTP) and enter your Slingshot password when prompted while sending mail, it works OK.

They never notified us of any change.... typical!

I managed to send with smtp.tranzpeer.net for a day before they blocked it, and then i had to switch back to smtp.slingshot.co.nz and turn of the TLS encryption.
