Re: [Evolution] SMTP - How can I tell if a problem is Evo or in the ISP?

Thanks for the reply.
The problem was the router as it happened. The CAMEL_.... environment variable also works (see other reply) to get 'debug' out.

Just watch as root with tcpdump the outbound SMTP traffic, like

# tcpdump -Xx -n host XXX and port 25

where XXX is the IP addr of your SMTP server. Concerning -Xx, check the
man page of FC6, I'm using FreeBSD and may be in FC6 the flags to
produce human readable output are different.

May be there is even a debug flag or environment variable to log the
SMTP traffic by Evo itself? But the above will work in any case.
