Maybe FAQ#13: (http://www.balsa.net/faq.html#faq13)
Why do I get "SMTP server problem: SMTP Server dropped connection"?
Balsa's default is to use the "submission" service on port 587. But
most servers still use the SMTP protocol on port 25, so just put
":smtp" or ":25" behind the server, ie. "smtp.addcom.de:25".

I am an expert Unix user and I steped into this trap too. :-)
(Fortunately I know how to handle tcpdump, so I fond the answer by myself.)
Hmmm. Suggestion: If balsa (via libesmtp) can not connect to port
587 it should switch to SMTP on port 25 automagicly.
