Re: Can't Send Mail, Mozilla Problem? Please Help

I don't know which packages were upgraded, just that it was a large
group.  (This is an aggravation - in the past I tried starting a script
before upgrading but the result was pages of entries, one for each
packet received.)

After the upgrade mozilla tries to send for about 30 seconds and then
reports the SMTP connection could not be completed.  The SMTP settings
are correct for my daughter's DSL account.

I am trying to send this response from mutt.
