Mail sending problem on Evolution


Hello all,
I have one small problem: Evolution doesn't want to send the mail throw the smtp server. When I'm trying to send an email I'm getting an error message:
Error while performing operation:
MAIL FROM response error: Syntax error, command unrecognized

I don't know what's wrong, because I haven't used any special symbols in my full name or email address. My full name is Paulius Banevicius and email is flubber@email.lt so as you can see there should be no errors in FROM field.
Please, help me with this, because you are my on of the last hopes..

Check your smtp settings, some come across where it tries to change the outgoing mail server you may have specified, etc. You can try using the IP address to test and or any other details you can provide on your setup, feel free to post them here.
