Email error SMTP

I have set up my new domain and have added the email to my Thunderbird email program.

I can send emails out of my new email address, but when I send mail to the new address, get this message - "Please turn on SMTP Authentication in your mail client. nsstlmta25p.bpe.bigpond.com [203.38.21.25]:40171 is not permitted to relay through this server without authentication." 

What can I try to do to fix this - in layman's terms thanks 😉

First you should set up a cname for mail pointed to @ and then add a Mx record for @ pointed to mail.yourdomain.com

@jonnyacidseed 

What is your domain and have you setup the MX records?

 

What/where is your email hosted, cPanel - Office 365 - Somewhere else??
