I now have several users that are having problems with sending mail 
via Kmail.  As a temporary measure I have set up web mail for them.
The common things seem to be Open SuSE 10.3 and the ISP.  Oddly enough 
if I set their login/password on my laptop (Open SuSE 10.2) at their 
locations and using their ADSL connection and equipment things work 
as they should.

Another thing that has happened in a couple of cases when I have done 
this is that odd mails sent weeks ago suddenly arrives in the inbox.  
This also happened on a machine that I reformatted and re-installed 
Open SuSE 10.2 onto

I hope that this helps shed some light on the problem..
