           Summary: Kmail account settings get out of sync when changing
           Product: kmail
           Version: 1.9.5
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kdepim-bugs kde org
        ReportedBy: nuorama gmail com

Version:           1.9.5 (using KDE 3.5.5, Debian Package 4:3.5.5a.dfsg.1-8 (4.0))
Compiler:          Target: i486-linux-gnu
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.18-5-k7

Steps to reproduce:
-Create a new accout for sending e-mails, with some wrong settings, such that it doesn't work
-write an e-mail and try so send it with the wrong smtp account, be sure it doesn't work
-fix the account and try to send the e-mail again. Kmail will try to send it with the old wrong settings.
-try to send the message again, now click on the sending identity and choose the newly repaired identity, now sending the e-mail should work

Same bug:
If you change the name of one of the sending accounts Kmail will be confused and say something like "unknown transport" (I don't know the actual message in English since I use it in Romanian). 
It is quite confusing and I didn't test all the posible combinations, but in order to make things work you kind of have to go to all the comboboxes related to sending messages and click on them to force an update.
