Ok....... (and no, this isn't the first time you have reported a 'bug')

I am re-posting, because I may have a bug in my Kmail client. I believe I
have located the problem in my email to Outbox problem, however, it has to do
with an irregularity in my email address and server identity.
My email address is stevenvollom at sbcglobal.net. It has remained that way, and
has continued as my email address, even after at&t became my server. I
believe this is the area of confusion in my kmail program. I just noticed a
peculiarity in the warning I get when mail is sent to the Outbox. Here is
the box that comes on the screen:
Connection to host smtp.att.yahoo.com is broken.
The message will stay in the 'outbox' folder until you either fix the problem
(e.g. a broken address) or remove the message from the 'outbox' folder.
The following transport protocol was used:
Notice that the transport protocol is indicated as Sbcglobal.net. I believer
there are two errors in the protocol. If sbcglobal.net is the appropriate
protocol, wouldn't it be small [s]? If it should be att.yahoo.com, would
that not be the confusion. Is perhaps Kmail taking this particular address
from my email address as opposed to the sender Host at&t?
