I guess I'm in gab (talk - in case this is a UKism) to myself mode today.
Sorry you guys have to listen to this nonsense.

Anyway, I'd taken the 'Domain Name' setting (in 'General') literally and had
put in the name of the domain as opposed to the name of the server.
Originally, I'd set it to the servers name but then I read what it was
asking for and thought that maybe it wanted the domain name that the server
was meant to be working with. However, this didn't make much sense to me
(for obvious reasons) so I switched it back when I was having problems.
Problem solved.

All good fun :-)
