I think this is also possible, try setting your smtp server to

Ok, even the manual has that :-) Only I hadn't read it. Well, it seems I have
a problem nevertheless, because when using SSL, Evolution hangs when
trying to connect to my SSL-enabled qmail server (I entered the server
name with :25 appended, the way you are suggesting). Can anyone say
that this should definitely work?

the SSL/SMTP port is 465, not 25 (and evo knows this, so if you choose
SSL and you don't specify a port, evo will auto-magically use 465).

Anyways, if your server uses the newer STARTTLS extension rather than an
sslwrapper, then Evolution will not work with that SMTP server with SSL.
The development version, however, will.
