I am trying to configure eNewsletter on my website hosted with Dreamhost

I am trying to set up eNewsletter in the settings page. My website is hosted by Dreamhost. When I click the "test connection" button I get the following error code: "Failed to send test email! - Please check your outgoing email settings and server config to see if selected ports are open. Error details: The following From address failed: thenielsenfamily@eaglenest-ministries.org : Called Mail() without being connected."

The settings I used for "from email" and "SMTP Outgoing Server" are: thenielsenfamil@www.eaglenest-ministries.org (I have also removed the "www." and it doesn't work either.) I have tried all the different port settings listed on the page. I am at a loss. Please help.
