I posted this question on the fedora forum
I thought I might get more looks here.
Anyway, I have been beating on this for days.
Evolution and Thunderbird refuse to send out email, both giving me a timed out error. I am using Fedora 7 which came with Evolution 2.10.3 installed.
I have tried the send setup in Evolution every which way except the correct way.
I have two mail servers to choose from, comcast which is also my ISP and Smileglobal which is our company email and web host.
send setup for comcast is supposed to be smtp.comcast.net:587
send setup for smileglobal is supposed to be smtp.smileglobal.com:2525
I have also tried mail.comcast.net:587 which has been suggested.
I have removed and reinstalled evolution. I have installed and tried thunderbird. No sending allowed.
I can telnet to smtp.comcast.net 587 and get a connected.
I can telnet to smtp.smileglobal.com 2525 and get a connected.
Does anyone have any idea why my outgoing email send is being blocked?
Or should I just try to install Outlook via Wine?
