can't send or receive mail using Kmail


Having spent some time getting my ADSL modem working and eventually suceeding I cannot send or receive emails using K mail.
I can surf fine using mozilla and konquerer.
I have set up the smtp and pop accounts as instructed and can send and receive to myself - not a lot of good but part of the setup sequence - but cannot send or receive - error messages such as "cant find pop.wanadoo.fr"

Oh, and by the way it works fine through Outlook express on Win XP on the same box.

What now ?

Huh? Are you sure your /etc/resolv.conf is correctly setup?

Are you using iptables or any form of firewall? What error message specifically does KMail report?

I dont know what /etc/resolve.conf is so how do I set it up ?

I am not using firewalls

The error message when trying to send to anyone else but me is " relay access denied"

By the way I am using KDE 3.2, Mandrake Official 10.1 Kernel 2.6.8.11-12mdk and a sagem f@st USB modem.
