Most likely this is an error in your evolution configuration. Go into the configuration for evolution and see if your smpt send server is set up as smtp.www.com. If it is then change it to the correct name.
i dont get it, in my configuration, the server is set up as
isnt this the correct name????
if it isnt, what is it???
Usually it something like: smtp.providername.com
You should have a look at the outgoing mail-server (smtp) and add the correct smtp-server. If you don't know the name of the smtp server of your provder, please contact them and ask them what name to use ...
i think i know why we arent understanding each other
my provider is www.com. if you tipe www.com on your browsers thingy for writing the page you want to go, youll find a site named www.com which is my mail provider (when somebody asks for my mail and i say @www.com, they always ask me "are you sure??").
in their configuration, it says their smtp server is smtp.www.com
i dont really know what this means, but intuition (and a 100% packet loss) tells me it didnt work
Maybe we have an answer here, it seems like that you have packet filtering enabled, something like a firewall ? iptables maybe? To see if there are any rules active type the following in you're terminal:
iptables -L -v
If you got a list of rules which might contain rules which are blocking your smtp port (25) or any other possible addempt to connect. Then switch of that rule or the whole firewall to check. Keep in mind that this might also lock you're internet connection.
