Something has changed in your config.

It might not have been you who changed it, so ask around.

THis sort of thing doesn't just "stop working", without intervention of
some description.

Have you checked your SMTP server is responsive?

Have you given the system a reboot (it is Windows after all, so this is
almost the first troubleshooting step).

Is you mail server set to relay email for the CF server?  (NB: do NOT set
an OPEN relay.  That would be bad).

Have your relay settings, or login creds changed?

Has anyone been fiddling with your firewall or port filters or anything?

Have you asked your mail admin what they've been doing?

There's really a lot of things you could investigate and report back on, I
think.
