I had the same with a new PC.
Go to the account and select Modify. Under the sending tab you have a box
that says 'Encryption' with three options available. I believe the default is
set to NONE. There is a button 'Check what server supports'. Click there to
get the proper setting on the encryption.
Gmail for example requires SSL encryption for sending; otherwise I had the
same message as you on the screen.
