My ISP (Verizon) changed the rules for sending email. They now require

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.

Hi John,

I use port 587 on my Hardy 8.04 for an msn account.  (
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. 

Good luck
