Email Notification Failure sockError:10061

I'm having a problem with 1 server not sending email notifications. We have a total of 3 servers all using version 6 twoof which are working fine. The failing server is an upgrade from version 4 while the 2 that work are new installs. I've seen a problem similar to this in the version 5 forums, but didn't see any resolution. I've verified the settings between a server that works and the one that fails and they are identical. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The actual error I'm receiving is:
SMTP connection failed
