    Talk to your IT guys at the office.
    It sounds like this smtp server is simply not available via public internet.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    You probably need to set Thunderbird to use your own ISP's SMTP server when you're at home. I use the SmtpSelect add-on with Thunderbird, and put the button on my toolbar. That makes it easy to change from your work SMTP to your home SMTP.
