On setting up the sending options I have checked user authentication but it, evolution, doesn't ever ask me for my password on sending email. And it should - at least once.

I used the same settings for outgoing mail that I had on pop.
Ill just keep looking for something then.


in changing to IMAP for incoming mail you should have duplicated the
send settings from your old mail account so your existing ISP is used.
Assuming you have done this exactly the same as previous setup, postfix
is not in the equation for sending and should have no bearing on this.

I suggest you check that you have your send details in the new IMAP
account correctly setup.
