    Default Kontact Sending Agent Problem

    Environment:
    KDE4 on OpenSuse 11.2-x86_64

    Problem:
    I need to configure the sending agent for kmail to be a SMTP server and Knode
    an imap server. However, if I set up kmail to use the SMTP server then Knode
    is also set to the same server. If I setup Knode to use the imap server it
    carries over to kmail. Is there a way to set two different sending agents.
    This is not a problem with KDE3.5.x.

    * PV,

    IMAP can't send mails. Care to elaborate on the problem?

    Uwe;

    For some perverse reason, the ISP requires that out going mail pass through
    their SMTP server. If you try to use the imap server it times out. We are
    required to authenticate in order to send mail, and my guess is that their
    imap server is not configured to support authentication. Conversely nntp
    requires the use of the imap server.
