Question Having trouble sending email with Open Web Mail


I installed Open Web Mail on my Linux (Fedora) box. I am able to receive email from my two pop3 accounts that I have set up but I am unable to send email from those accounts (I am able to send using Evolution and Mozilla). I am guessing that it's a config error on my part but I can't find it. I have a feeling I know what the problem is but I don't know where to fix it. When I try to compose a new email...
In the "From" box is my username.domain instead of a valid email address
ex. mike@bellsouth.net
Where can I change this address?

Thanks for your help,
Mike

This might be way out there, but you don't need to use Open Web Mail to send email from Evolution or Mozilla (i could be wrong - probably am). In the "accounts" settings in either Mozilla or Evolution, you need to use the "smtp" that your ISP has provided to you. For example, i have to put "smtp1.sympatico.ca" in order to send email. And i don't think you need to check off "use password" to use this option (well i don't any ways). Hope that helped a bit :-)

thanks for the input but I am using Open Web Mail to check my email from a remote location. When I am on my own box I do not have any problems sending email.

Any other suggestions?

Well as for the open web mail, sorry about that. I guess i wasn't reading the question properly. But as for any other suggestions, well i use the http protocol to check and send emails on the road. Basically just using the web browser. My web host provided me with email accounts that could be accessed by using http://webmail.example.com. It would bring up an "Internet" interface for mail. I think it was called Horde. Sorry again. It's not exactly a solution to your original problem. Kind of a crude work around (that is if you have access to a webmail account provide by the web host).

Thanks, I do have access to a web account with Bellsouth. I just thought it would be cool to get Open Web Mail working.
