Answer
Martin - when I travel I find that I can only "send" email from my webmail account, not from Outlook.  

There is a basic overview at the following

I am not recommending their service and I do not know anything about what they are providing.

This is just have an overview of some of the problems associated with sending email and traveling.  It is not about Outlook, it is about the network, ISP, Server, especially free WiFi service.
