Hi Diederic.  I too have 2 ISP accounts. The second one is only a pay by the 
minute backup. I can receive mail from both accounts no matter which ISP I am 
connected to, but for sending mail you seem to need to have the SMTP account 
for whichever ISP your logged into, set as default by moving it up to the top 
of the list. 

I think what is happening, is. You are connected to X, but the SMTP account is 
set as default for sending through the SMTP server belonging to Y, which it 
won't do, and is why the mail stays in the outbox. I'd love to be proved 
wrong, but think the only option is to reset the default SMTP account to 
whichever ISP you're logged into, if you want to send mail through both ISP's 
SMTP servers.

I suppose the alternative is to use Kmail for one of the ISP accounts, and 
another e-mail client for the other ISP, but that sounds a bit of a hack.
