Maybe you are suffering from this bug:
http://support.ximian.com/q?438] http://support.ximian.com/q?438
If this is the bug, the solution is to remove *all* comments, empty
lines and probably all unnecessary white space from your /etc/hosts
file.

Speedfreak, thanks for the tip. I just put Evolution on Slack 9.1 and found this thread through Google. My hosts file had two entries for 127.0.0.1 (and a note to never, ever name 127.0.0.1). I removed the named entry and smtp mail now works.
