Thanks for the suggestion, but no joy. My server already required
authentication, but I unchecked the box that says use the same server as for
incoming mail, and checked the next one, and entered the required data. It
made no change in the problem.
However, I did notice that, after starting WMail, if I first do Receive
only, then do Send only, I get the same error message, even though it is the
first time I've tried send since starting WMail. Send works the first time
only if I have not yet done a Receive. I am inclined to think Receive is not
hanging up correctly, or whatever it does when finishing.
