Is this for new mails (after the setting was changed), or ones sitting
in your outbox queue?

Try clearing out the queue, or editing the mails and removing the
X-Evolution-Transport headers.

with the upgrade from evo-1.4 to evo-2.0.4 i've lost the ability to
change the smtp port. i need to change that as port 25 is often blocked
and i'm able to send my mails over another port through my mailserver.

what do you mean by "lost"? you can always enter the port number in your
preferences by using the form "host:port", e.g. "".

no, it doesn't work anymore. i don't know what is wrong because it
really tries to open a connection. i still have evo-1.4 which is working

hmm. did you shut dow evolution entirely by "evolution --force-shutdown"
and then restarting it? hmm... no idea.


yes i did. doesn't work :(. you may try it too by explicitly specify
port 25 - doesn't work neither. 

thanks for any answers so far. it doesn't work for new mails neither. i
i shutdown evolution with the --force-shutdown flag and removed any
mails in the output queue. when REMOVING the explicitly port number when
a mail is in the queue it does work however. is this a known issue, i.e.
should i upgrade or am i the first one complaining about this?
