there is no way in the GUI. It used to be possible in the past, but it
had been removed years ago. You can do it yourself by editing the
corresponding file in ~/.config/evolution/sources/, where you replace
in the corresponding .source file in the [Mail Transport] section.
A restart of evolution-source-registry might be needed to get the
changes into effect, ideally change the file when it's not running, but
it's not always possible from a desktop environment. After the change
run Evolution and edit the account SMTP settings there.

I'm using the `evolution` package that comes with Debian (`testing`
on some machines and `stable` on others),

Hmm, that doesn't tell me anything, neither anyone using a different
distribution than you. At least the version of Evolution from the
Help->About menu will be better, eventually package versions of all
evolution* packages.
