It finally works again!!! After being unable to understand the reasons for 
the problem (I still don't understand) i thought of giving a try at 
deleting the account for sending in KMail and reentered it with exactly the 
same settings... And it works!

Can someone explain that? But i am just happy it works.. i can again 
participate on mailing lists without much trouble! :-)
