What is the severity? If it only happens once
and then works on retry you might want to look at
the circumstances it happens under and change
what you are doing to cause it. E.g. I could
imagine that symptom happening if you tried
sending too quickly and too often. I can't remember
ever seeing OE issuing a QUIT on an open connection
and I doubt that WLMail is any different, so I think that
that could cause it and other related symptoms.
OTOH if it never works, are you sure that you have
that account configured correctly? E.g. often
secure SMTP is associated with a different port
and normal SMTP is associated with port 25.
