RE: [Evolution] Problems sending smtp mail in Evo 1.4.5 and 1.5.0

Thanks for the info.

I managed to make the SSL problem go away by removing everything from my
/etc/hosts file as suggested in one of the posts on this list.

However, now when I send messages, the message ID field is as follows:

Message-Id: <1083807608.2430.0.camel@(null)>

Where does this value of (null) come from and I guess how can I change
it? Some of my mail gets returned to me by the mail servers of the
recepients with error message (reason: 553 5.0.0 Message-Id header line
format error)

Thanks guys!

Note that if you have mail sitting in your outbox, it will keep track

So make sure you clear it out and send a fresh mail when the setting

I have tried every possible combination of settings to no avail.
Currently the SSL option is set to "Whenever possible".

        yes, it means that their SMTP server presumably supports the
        STARTTLS extension and thus uses port 25 for both.
        Try changing your "Use SSL" option for SMTP to "Whenever
        Possible" instead of "Always" if that is what it is already
        set as. "Whenever Possible" uses STARTTLS and doesn't even
        attempt the high port.
