Am at an Internet Kiosk, where I volunteer some time this morning, and using 
Kmail to send test emails through the clearmail address, without any 
problems, without any changes in configuration to my lappy's Kmail 
configuration files. So it would appear to be an error with the Clearnetworks 
server which is giving me the problem, which doesn't get picked up in 
Icedove? Or maybe they have fixed it?

Will have to see when I get back home tonight.

Thank you to all for your help in trying to get this to work.

Be well,
