This sounds like an SMTP error. Originally, all SMTP (outgoing mail)
servers would relay mail from anywhere as a courtesy. Then spammers
messed it all up. Now, all properly configured SMTP servers reject mail
that is not sent from within their domain. So, if you are connected to
ISP_X, you have to route mail through X's SMTP server (because none of
the others will accept you) and vice-versa. KMail probably has a
configuration setting for this.
That isn't quite the last word on this. (Workarounds include
POP-before-SMTP and SSH Port forwarding)
Hope that helps,
