eM client 'set up' not sending email.

New eM client user, I have set up 2 accounts connecting to tiscali webmail addresses. Both accounts receive mail ok, but I cannot send mail from either. I have run ‘diagnostics’ and attempted ‘fix’ to no avail. I’ve tried different ‘smtp’ (outgoing) ports and various authentication/ security combinations, with no success. Error message suggests a ‘certificate’ expiry fault ?? I’m using uptodate windows 10 64 bit, windows firewall and Avira AV Pro.
Any hellp will be very welcome.
