cannot send or receive emails from my work place but can from home

I want to send and receive emails from my normal place of work using a domain set up with fasthosts. I am using Thunderbird Portable ver 2 alpha 1. At home I use Pipex as my ISP and I can both send and receive emails using fasthosts smtp server without any problems however at work we use star internet and I cannot send or receive emails using Thunderbird portable. From reading other posts I have tried using different port numbers and also setting up a differnt smtp server in the acount that uses the same settings as my work outlook account but still nothing.
The outlook field settings on my work pc for both incoming and outgoing mail server are set to "netstar"
Any suggestions ?

try using "netstar" at

try using "netstar" at work...? It sounds like they've blocked off other servers and so you either have to use theirs or none at all.

Odds are your company will monitor it and be able to read your e-mails. Not normally a problem, but something to keep in mind.

netstar

hi - I have tried creating another outgoing server using "netstar" but that doesnt work either. Is using "netstar" on its own for the server name ok ? or should it have smtp in front and .co.uk or .com at the end ?
