kmail doesn`t send

Asked by flo on 2008-10-13

when I try to send messages, they remain in the outbox. at the beginning it worked fine one time, from then on I couldn`t send messages from any account. The program seems to try to send it, but doesn`t succeed.
sometimes, it displays `unknown transport protocol`.
with thunderbird, everything works fine. but I prefer kmail...

What mail service are you using? Hotmail? Gmail? Yahoo mail? Your company's internal mail server?

I am using several mail services including Gmail. But none works with Kmail, all work with Thunderbird.
