I hope this is the right category for this, I couldn't find a place to put it in Apps.

I'm having some trouble sending mail via SMTP in Kmail. I know it isn't my SMTP settings in Fedora since the other mail program Evolution sends mail just fine.

I had the same problem when I tried installing SuSE with KDE. So I suspect it's a problem with KMail, perhaps something's not configured correctly?

I get the following error message when I try to send a message:
Sending Failed:
Your SMTP server does not support authentication.
The server responded: "Command is locally disabled"

The following transport protocol was used:
Sympatico

The Sympatico outgoing account has the following settings:
Name: Sympatico
Host: smtp1.sympatico.ca
Port: 25
Precommand:
Server requires authentication: Yes
Login: blah@sympatico.ca
Password: ***********
Store SMTP password: Yes
Send custom hostname to server: No

And my Default domain is: localhost.localdomain

I would also like to note that POP works fine in KMail for me.

Hi,

>Your SMTP server does not support authentication.
>The server responded: "Command is locally disabled"

With the other mail clients do you authenticate with a username/password? Have you tried removing the
username and password and setting the client not to authentacate?

Wow. It worked, but it's weird to me because in Windows I always have to provide a username and password to send via SMTP and this is how I set it up in Konquerer as well. Is there any reason for this to be different in KMail?

Hi,

Did you have KMail setup on the machine the SMTP is setup on because that could be why

Same machine? This is me trying to get my email from my ISP, I'm not quite sure what you're asking.
