What "relay not permitted" means is that the mail server you are using to
send your email messages is NOT the mail server of the ISP you are connected
to. This ISP that you are connecting through does not allow you to send
email through their service trying to use a different SMTP mail server. You
must use their mail server, which usually means using an email account
assigned to you through them.
