Description of problem:
When trying to send mail, Evo pops up a dialog with..
Error while performing operation:
Could not connect to smtp.aaisp.net.uk
(port 25): Bad file descriptor
Routing is fine, and I can connect to the smtp port of said server fine
This seems to be a recent breakage, as test3 worked. Its worth noting that this
broke after the recent IPV6 changes, and doing a telnet does this...
(15:43:55:davej@veebl:davej)$ telnet smtp.aaisp.net.uk 25
Connected to smtp.aaisp.net.uk.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 smtp.aaisp.net.uk ESMTP Exim 4.22 Sun, 19 Oct 2003 15:45:26 +0100
(Note it tries the ipv6 address first). There is no ipv6 interface on this box.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to send mail to mailserver with ipv6 IP with no ipv6 interface
Actual Results: Mail gets sent to the ipv4 address.
Expected Results: I'm guessing it's trying to route it to the ipv6 interface,
doesn't find one, and goes bang with the "bad file descriptor"
-5 should fix this.
