email 'send' NO - email 'receive' YES..?


i travel a lot - and use wifi access in hotels all over the world..mostly unsecured network access..
for email communication i use kmail from within the kontact-wrapper..

my prob is that i can receive emails fine - but sending is not possible..brings up an error window with this text:

Sending failed:
Could not connect to host
The message will stay in the 'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem (e.g. a broken address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder.
The following transport protocol was used: host smtp
Do you want me to continue sending the remaining messages?

i have altered the smtp1 address in this thread for privacy reasons..

does anyone know what i can do in order to be able to send emails..?
