Trouble connecting to SMTP server...
I'm running debian, and just switched locations for where i access the internet. the LAN i plug in to is non-DHCP, but i didn't have any troubles setting up /etc/network/interfaces to set up a manual ip assignment, plus adding new nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf. however, thunderbird can't connect to the smtp servers that i previously had been using to send mail - so i can receive mail, but cannot send. i'm able to ping the servers without a problem... so what the heck is going on here?
thanks for any help!

try setting your outbound host address in your mail programme config to whatever the hostname of your server is on your network. I currently have a server with hostname 'server' and a win xp machine which i use to send mail thru outlook, and i have to use 'server' as both inbound and outbound addresses for it to work.
