    mail.bigpond.com

    Using nslookup gives

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: mail.bigpond.com
    Addresses: 144.135.25.9, 144.135.24.8

    Just use mail.bigpond.com in the server fields.

    Its fixed, all works.

    It was pretty stupid actually. The Dial up connector flicks out...you had to push in some clear button which I didnt see, so I obviously stuck the phone cord into the network card. :p
