Well it's telling you exactly what's wrong, the SMTP server that you
are trying to send the mail to, smtp.northlc.com, doesn't exist.
If you do "host smtp.northlc.com" it returns:
Host smtp.northlc.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)
... a quick check (by doing "host northlc.com") suggests that maybe
you should be using either smtp.trueband.net or smarthost.trueband.net
but you really need to contact your ISP and ask to find the name you
should be using.
