           Summary: "Check was server supports" is incomplete on SMTP auth
           Product: kmail
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Compiled Sources
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: kde opensource sf-tec de

Version:           r707626 (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
Compiler:          4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux) 
OS:                Linux

My SMTP server allows AUTH only in STARTTLS mode. "Check what server supports" automatically selects TLS but afterwards I can't select AUTH because it always says "server does not support authentication". Looks like it does only check the server capabilities once. Correct behaviour is to take the capabilities of the server in selected encryption mode (if any) so rechecking in TLS mode is needed.
