After a lot of problems installing Slackware the last three weeks (still not done) I finally got Evolution working, but I still have an annoying problem. When I try to send mail using my ISPs SMTP server it simply refuses, giving the error: "Unable to authenticate to SMTP server.
Bad authentication response from server." Trying the exact same settings (seemingly) in Mozilla the mail delivers without any problems. Does anyone have a clue on how to fix this? Is there a settings file somewhere that I could edit? I solved the problem by installing sendmail and using my own smtp server, but I guess I shouldn't have too.
In your settings, is the "Use authentication" box checked for sending mail? If so, uncheck it. You do need to use authentication to get mail, but there is no need to use authentication for sending mail. I was facing the same problem as you describe, and this fixed it for me.
If you do a search on these forums for Evolution, you will find numerous other posts related to this very topic. -- J.W.
I just installed Slackware 9.1 and have Evolution 1.4.5 running. You ever get this resolved? I am having the same issues. I have used Evolution in the past and never had any issues until this version on Slackware. Also using Thunderbird and Outlook on my WinXP box doesn't have any issues.
I don't want to really set up sendmail on this machine. Also I have always used my hosting companies mail servers for all the email accounts I have and it's never been a issue. I will keep looking into it though....
