    Default Kmail does not send

    Hi all

    After the latest updates, it is no longer possible to send an e-mail via kmail. I suspect an SSL problem, because the sending without SSL on port 25 still works fine. Does anyone else know this problem?

    Regards
    Stephan

    Start with documentation for your email provider.
    Typically encrypted SMTP is on a different port than unencrypted.
    You may also need to configure whether your username/password credentials are the same as your receiving (typically POP3 or IMAP) and whether your SMTP credentials are sent before or after receiving mail.

    In other words, lots of issues to identify.
    Only then you can get to work.

    The other thing to be aware of is that if you're talking about Yahoo mail, they no longer (and haven't now for about a year but may only now be enforcing on you) provide free email service for mail clients unless your email provider is a Yahoo partner (like ATT/DirectTV). Yahoo email now is free only by using a web browser (or pay what was it? $25/year?) or if you are a subscriber to a Yahoo partner, then there are special mail servers you need to configure.

    Did you have any issues with openssl packages due to the move to a newer version?
    These are the packages I've got installed, no issues with sending mail at all
    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep ssllibopenssl1_0_0-1.0.2m-2.1.x86_64
    openssl-1_1_0-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64
    openssl-1.1.0g-1.1.noarch
    libopenssl-devel-1.1.0g-1.1.noarch
    libopenssl1_0_0-32bit-1.0.2m-2.1.x86_64
    libopenssl1_1_0-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64
    libopenssl1_1_0-32bit-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64
    libopenssl-1_1_0-devel-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64

    Hi

    Thanks for your response.

    Start with documentation for your email provider.
    Well, my account properties are still unchanged. Snipped from ~/.config/mailtransports:

    Code:
    auth=true
    authtype=1
    encryption=SSL
    host=amphora.sui-inter.net
    id=1062202218
    name=amphora.sui-inter.net
    port=465
    storepass=true
    user=stephan@boeni.com
    Did you have any issues with openssl packages due to the move to a newer version?
    Here are the installed SSL packages (rpm -qa | grep ssl | sort):

    Code:
    libopenssl1_0_0-1.0.2n-1.1.x86_64
    libopenssl1_0_0-32bit-1.0.2n-1.1.x86_64
    libopenssl1_0_0-steam-32bit-1.0.2n-1.1.x86_64
    libopenssl1_1_0-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64
    libopenssl1_1_0-32bit-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64
    libressl-devel-2.6.3-2.1.x86_64
    libssl44-2.6.3-2.1.x86_64
    openssl-1_1_0-1.1.0g-3.1.x86_64
    openssl-1.1.0g-1.1.noarch
    Before update, i was on openssl version 1.0.0.

    Hm... I had something like a couple of times.
    Try running akonadiconsole and try to restart or delete and add again
    the Mail Dispatcher Agent.

    Hope it helps.

    Done. Still the same problem. :-(

    When i reopen my e-mail in the "Postausgang" (outbox?) folder, an error is displayed:

    Code:
     Dictionary was not found. Please verify that you will use a correct dictionary.
    Checking the mail message in akonadiconsole:

    Code:
    Fehler beim Übertragen der Nachricht. Serverfehler
    Das Grantlee-Design „“ ist ungültig.
    (Error while transferring the message. server error
    The Grantlee design "" is invalid.)

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Tinkering with Kmail is daunting because it can be shaky. postfix is rock solid. You may try to set up a email server for debugging using Yast. I am using mail for sending and fetchmail for receiving mail. If that works the connection to your server is ok. The problem is with Kmail, Otherwise it is with postfix/smtp.

    Suddenly seeing this too. It is an akonadi / pim /.kmail issue, IMHO.

    It's apparently related to SSL, using TLS should be fine. (I don't have a problem here)

    A fix is on the way:
