My ISP (Verizon) changed the rules for sending email. They now require
using port 587 to send email instead of the default port 25. I have made
the change on my 2 windows machines using Eudora 7 with ease but getting
Evolution to work has been a problem. It still received email but will
not send. I have changer the SMTP server name to include :587 at the end
but still no luck. I am running Ubuntu 8.1o on the desktop and 8.04 on
the netbook with the same results.

I use port 587 on my Hardy 8.04 for an msn account. (smtp.live.com:587)
But I do also use TLS instead SSL encryption to make it work. You might
want to try that. At first when I tried using SSL it didn't work.
Switching to TLS made it work.
