No worries. Yes looks as though the email admins have rebooted the servers. the smtp.tiscali.co.uk server is responding.
Let us know if you need any additional advice on upgrading your email client settings to use the recommended talktalk.net host name servers.

There's an issue with the DNS or smtp.tiscali.co.uk mail server that handles the sending of pipex mail. The email admins are on the case but I'll add you to the report.
Looks like you're still using legacy mail settings so I'll give you the correct settings to use in email clients.
The email client software / app may require updating of email settings. All TalkTalk Consumer mailboxes use the same Email Settings. See TalkTalk Mail Support Hub
On updating the email software incoming, outgoing and some advanced server settings, you'll possibly be asked to accept a new certificate (yes, accept) and to enter the email password so have the current password ready. Tick to remember or save the password before entering it.
Supported* email client and app settings are:
|Account Type||IMAP (recommended) or POP3
|Username||Full email address|
|Incoming mail server||mail.talktalk.net|
|Incoming Port (IMAP / POP3)||993 / 995|
|Incoming Connection Security||SSL/TLS (Use SSL on for mobile)
|Outgoing mail server||smtp.talktalk.net|
|Outgoing Connection Security||STARTTLS (Use SSL on for mobile)
|Outgoing Authentication Required||Yes|
|Authentication Method||Normal Password|
Apple/Mac Mail Connection Security is use TLS/SSL
It's also important to make sure the email address is added to a TalkTalk Consumer customer MyAccount to avoid restriction to webmail only access and possible deletion.
TalkTalk Mail Plus is the mail only subscription service for TalkTalk Mail users in the UK that are not home broadband customers.
* Email clients, apps and devices that do not support secure mail using a minimum of TLS1.2 connection security are not supported.
