Anybody any hint?
When KMail has an mail refused from the server it stores the refused
mail in the Outbox, and next time you try to send an mail it tries to
send this mail once again first.
The mail is of course refused again and this stop KMail from sending any
other mail. So delete the refused mail or (maybe better) empty the
Outbox before you try again.
Thank you for your hint!
Thunderbird on another partition with Zenwalk could not send either.
(I discovered later).
The message indicated that my provider had blocked my outgoing messages,
possibly because of a virus, resulting in my sending lots of emails.
In contact with the helpdesk of my provider I said that I could not imagine
that a virus was causing this problem, since I use only Linux.
I was given the benefit of the doubt and the blockade was released.
Back in Slack i discovered that the index of my mail-folders was completely
mixed up. Then did following:
- moved my /kmail to another folder and started Kmail with empty folders.
- stopped Kmail and moved mail-folders back to /kmail.
- did not move the indexes back (which I did when installing Slack-12)
When opening Kmail and clicking the various folders I got the idea that
the new indexes were made.
Anyhow all is OK now.
I wonder now that wrong indexes may have caused me sending lots of emails.
