    kmail can't send but will receive mail

    Recently installed kubuntu Intrepid and would like to give kmail a go after years if using thunderbird.
    However, can't for the life of me work out how to set it up properly!
    Have followed instructions from several sites but keep getting an error - Transport 'send.xtra.co.nz' is invalid - whenever I try to send an email. I am able to receive them.
    The settings are the same as those I'm using in Thunderbird, which is still working.
    Have read on the forums that completeremoval and reinstallation of kmail sometimes helps but in this case it hasn't.
    May be that I'm missing something really simple but can't think what it is. Would appreciate any ideas!

    Thanks,

    Blair

    did you try mail.xtra.co.nz, or smtp.xtra,co.nz

    Hi,

    Yes, I've tried them both; but the send.xtra.co.nz is what's used in thunderbird and what's advised by the ISP in their help pages (they don't specifically mention kmail though).
