Hello and welcome.

-What version of OS X/macOS?
-You are using the Apple Mail app, correct?

I believe that most VPNs add proxy settings in  > System Preferences... > Network > Wi-Fi > Advanced... > Proxies. If there is a proxy added/enabled, you have to be connected to the VPN to use it and send mail. If you aren't connected to the VPN, you would need to disable the proxy. It might be best to setup and additional Location in Network - one for the VPN and one without.

How to use network locations on your Mac

See if that helps,
