Sorry about that it was a typo on my part they mentioned on a help page that the servers address is so that is what i used for both the only strange thing is i can receive but can't send all i get is a error message saying i am missing a domain for some reason or the other is there any way of correcting this problem?

I too am a Bellsouth customer. The correct construct of the mail server is, as far as I know, "mail.<locality>". The locality part describes a city, or area, coding system unique to Bellsouth's server set up.

I would just give them a call and make sure of the coding for the mail server name. They don't care what OS you're running for dial-up, at least around here. Like anyone else, their helpdesk folks are typically M$-centric, but that's just the nature of the beast. Just translate their instructions to the actual fields that show on the KDE setup input.

Or you can always use SENDMAIL, of couse this is not really "the" fix for your problem, but rather "A" fix.
