These techs should train themselves regarding smtp ;-).
Interesting, they sent me a message through kmail from their end, and I received it, but couldn't reply to it.
If I attempt to send an email to myself, the test of the satellite
provider [smtp], or anyone else using Kmail 1.9.5 [using KDE 3.5.7],
with the new email address after setting the accounts up, I get an error

Sending failed:
Message sending failed since the following recipients were rejected by
the server:
madesecure@clearmail.com.au (The server responded: "relaying mail to
clearmail.com.au is not allowed")

This indicates that you could connect to the mail server but he rejected your mail for some reason. Therefore you should check this out with your email provider.
The provider couldn't discover why this should happen from my end. They had no problem sending to me through kmail from their end? They did describe a different configuration window, so assume they were using something like Ubuntu rather than Debian. It sounded like a more up to date kmail.
I have no problem sending through the old dialup provider and have used
Kmail for years. This is a new twist.

I'd assume that your satellite provider is blacklisted somewhere.

Interesting as well? Icedove isn't blacklisted through that provider? Kmail is?

You may well be right, but why kmail and not Icedove?

Thanks for your suggestions.
