Description Dave Jones 2003-10-19 10:48:58 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20031010

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
with telnet.

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
Trying 2001:8b0::d9a9:1411...
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):

How reproducible:

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"
