Description Arno Versfeld 2011-09-25 18:42:48 UTC
Description of problem:

My email address is set up correctly as "arno.versfeld@telkomsa.net"
When I hit "send/Receive" evolution picks up any email on the pop3 server but I get and error message when the message in the out-box is to be sent:

"RCPT TO <arno.versfeld@elkomsa.net> failed: <arno.versfeld@elkomsa.net>: Recipient address rejected: Domain not found"

You will notice that the error message shows elkomsa.net instead of telkomsa.net.
I've deleted the account and recreated it but the error stays the same.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I'm running Fedora 16 beta version, Evolution 3.1.92

How reproducible:

simply hit "send/receive" when evolution is open and I get the same error message.

Steps to Reproduce:

1.Open Evolution
2.Simply hit "send/receive"
3.Message in out-box remains in out-box.
Actual results:

Error message:
"RCPT TO <arno.versfeld@elkomsa.net> failed: <arno.versfeld@elkomsa.net>: Recipient address rejected: Domain not found"

Expected results:

Send message in "Outbox" and no error messages

Sounds like a typo in the recipient list of one of your outbox messages...

Thanks for a bug report. I agree with Matthew, the domain in the address is "elkomsat.net", but yours is "telkomsat.net", the initial "t" is missing there.
