Can't send email using SMTP...stuck
Here is another challenge I am facing. I have set my email sending smtp correctly (checked over and over, checked password, and user, etc) which requires authentication in all email clients in MEPIS 3.4.3_rc3. Thunderbird 1.0.7 (debian), Mozilla 1.7.12-1, and KMail. All are getting stuck when sending email..respinding with an error saying "sending message failed using SMTP". I am able to receive email but sending is a problem.
So here is what I have done:
1. Checked if I can send with WInXP (sometimes our network guys like fiddling with the server without informing us), but it works fine in WINXP
2. In MEPIS, I checked firewall setting in Guarddog, and the Mail.SMTP protocol is ticked meaning it is allowed; all other internet protocols are permitted.
3. I do not use a proxy, so that is not the issue
How do I go about resolving this?
