Evolution: Receive new e-mails, but can't send

Post by JaybirdSig2 »

Beginning about last Saturday at 5 o'clock I noticed that there were no new emails. At the time I was running a a hard drive with Ubuntu 14. that I've used for years. I've been migrating to a different HD with a fresh install Mint 18.1, and just installed Evolution on it and migrated my profile to it. I assumed that changing environments would fix the problem, but it was the same on the new HD as well. At some time, I started receiving new emails and am to present, but still can't send any or reply to any. It seems to be in my system, since I can use Frontiernet's site and emails work allright there. I have Evolution installed.

i tried Frontier's help resource, but they only do windows. My pop3 and smtp settings are all good, as evidenced by the fact that I can receive.I wonder if there is some problem in the profile that carried over to the new system.

Are you getting any error messages when trying to send? Also note that receiving is only handled by the POP3 settings. Sending is only handled by the SMTP settings. They don't overlap in functionality.

This interests me so I'll tag along if I may. I did and upgrade from Mint 18 to 18.1 but immediately lost my ability to connect with Thunderbird. I did several installs/reinstalls and eventually came back to Mint 18 and have no problems. Being relatively new to being a full-time user of Mint I've searched but found no solution, I hope your's may be relevant.
