Evolution will not send


Ximian Evolution 1.2.2 [1.2.2-4] with Red hat 9.0. Receives fine but will not send e-mail. When I try I get the following error message:
"Domain of sender address Myname@localhost.localdomain does not exist."

I have reviewed all the addresses in the configuration files with my ISP. He, who has some experience with Linux, believes that his addresses are configured correctly for Evoultion, but that for some reason my system is looking in the wrong place for his address thus getting the localhost.localdomain address.

Thanks in advance,

I don't use Evolution, but basically all email client apps are the same... Your particular prob sounds like you didn't set your SMTP settings correctly.

You can receive because your POP3 settings are corect.

i use a cable modem to connect, but my evolution account is with a free online provider. i receive fine from their imap server, but to send i need to use my cable modem provider's smtp. it sounds like you may already be doing this, but just in case...

in case you're wondering, i think it's got something to do with security and preventing spammers from using an free online smtp. something like that.
