Maybe FAQ#13: (
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. "".

(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.
