           Summary: Hoary Evolution cannot send email using SMTP and TLS
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: evolution
        AssignedTo: seb128 at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: eisen at dunhackin.org

My mail server (mail.dunhackin.org) uses TLS to encrypt the conversation between
itself and all mail clients.  After TLS is started, then a username/password is
sent to authenticate the mail client.  This used to work fine with Evolution
under Warty, but now fails after I did "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" to Hoary. 
The mail server is Postfix running on RedHat 9, but I don't think that matters.
 The SSL certificate is self-signed, but I don't think that matters either. 
This same mail server has worked all along with Mozilla Thunderbird -- and
that's Thunderbird on Warty, Thunderbird on Hoary, Thunderbird on Windows, etc.
 Oh, and Evolution also works with this mail server when run from Fedora Core 2
and 3.

My current Evolution package is
