Yes.  When folks ask for help with networking type issues and give out
IP addresses of xx.xx.xx.123 or domain names of it it
obscures the problem.  Now that you've revealed that you are talking
about a real world domain name should be easier to help.  FWIW, I see
other responses which should lead to a resolution.

One thing that I do is to telnet to the ports being used to make sure a
connection is being made.  If it is standard SMTP I'll do...

telnet 25

or if SSL/TLS

telnet 465

Even if you do learn to speak correct English, whom are you going to
speak it to? -- Clarence Darrow
