    Re: HOWTO: Send and Receive Hotmail through Evolution

    UPDATE and a FIX:

    For those of you who have issues SENDING using this method, the following is for you.

    I am running 7.04 on my Tosh laptop, and had the exact same error with sending : "Operation In Progress" in Evolution using hotwayd and hotsmtpd.

    I felt the issue was in hosts.allow and I was right. Please add the following line to /etc/hosts.allow :

    hotsmtpd: 2500
    This was the end-all-be all of my issues, and now sending works fine. I hope it helps with anyone else who is having the issue.

    Also, to mention, I have configured xinetd with option "--inetd_compat" as suggested in a post somewhere in this thread. After editing hosts.allow, I did the following:
    sudo /etc/init.d/inetutils-inetd restart
    sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
