    Were you using an external SMTP server?

    Did you update your SMTP credentials?

    Does your new host allow accessing remote SMTP servers?

    in the old days you used to be able to verify smtp by telnetting in on the port and testing and manually responding.

    you might try that to be sure what you think is correct is correct.

    maybe the port changed, maybe it require security settings.

    see if you get an error.

    ssh to your server and telnet out to smtp server on port 25.

    you might have more things to worry about than smtp regarding security breaches.
    probably a good idea to upgrade to 2.1.13p1 or vanilla 2.2

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
