Actually Derek,

I did do all of that and many times over I might add and kmail simply 
kept f*****g up on the transport protocol that IT chose, not me! I 
manually chose the correct protocol, hit send and the send failed, I 
would check the pending mail and the protocol had defaulted to 
something not my choice.

I gave up to the point of installing 7.10 on a separate drive and 
dumping 8.04 I had gotten so p****d off, but then had a flash of 
inspiration of using googlemail as the only transport protocol. I 
probably tried every possible combination of setting up kmail and it 
would not work, even when I chose specific transport protocols for 
each identity (just as you suggest yes, I did that too) and kmail 
still would not send because it (kmail) kept choosing the wrong 
transport protocol.

Now I remember just how pissed off I got with that...
chunter, chunter...
