KMail can't send mail


I just switched from RedHat 9 to Suse 9.1. Now I can't get KMail to send my mail. I have a DSL connection, and previously all I had to do was to tell KMail where my smtp server was. I tested this with Windoze and it wored.

When I try to send mail I get the message:
Failed to send (some) queued messages.
in KMail's status bar.

There don't seem to be any messages being generated in /var/log. How can I begin to find the problem?

Same here when I went from Mandrake 9.1 to 10. Does Kmail use postfix under the covers? Thunderbird works.
