|Subject: [vox-tech] problems sending mail using SBC's smtp server
|This makes me feel like a newbie!
|I have SBC dsl and I'm trying to use their outgoing mail 
|server to send out emails.  I found that SBC's outgoing mail 
|server is smtp.prodigy.net, so I tried this setting with both 
|Evolution and Mozilla-Firebird. With this setting both email 
|programs are able to send messages, but I get an error message 
|and the outgoing messages allways stays in my "outgoing" mail 
|folder.  For instance, Evolution tells me this:

Hmm, I have SBC dsl and that is not my outgoing mail server. They do have
several though - you might want to make sure that really is your smtp
server. Check the following: http://help.sbcglobal.net/article.php?item=287

And I'm confused. You say that "both email programs are able to send
messages" and then you say that "outgoing messages always stay in your
outgoing mail folder"? Doesn't sound like "both email programs are able to
send messages"...?

|Error while performing operation: RSET response error: 
|Operation now in progress
|I tried running Evolution with the --debug switch and it 
|printed out some messages.  I found this, which may be related:
|received: 250 2.0.0 i218J72U258790 Message accepted for 
|delivery sending : RSET^M
|received: (null)
|What does all this mean???  Any ideas how to fix this???  
|oh... btw... I'm tried sending out email using SBC's mail 
|server on Windows and it worked fine.  Am I missing some 
|libraries or something like that?
|Thanks for any suggestions!
