Bug Description

Binary package hint: kmail

Until yesterday everything worked fine (for about 2 weeks i'm using Kmail aus my Mail client).
Today i always get this message when trying to send a mail via google mail:

"Credentials Rejected" --> followed by some number.
"The Server doenst support plain authentification"

Infact, plain-auth is the only auth-method the google smtp server supports.
Sending Mail via Opera and Thunderbird is flawlessly. (with the same config: tls: 587)
I tested the other 2 configuration alternatives describend on googles help site (ssl:25;ssl:468)
but that didnt work neither.

I even got the message, the server wouldnt listen on these ports, what is actually not correct.

I cant help myself. do you have suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Acutally, the problem doesnt exist anymore, but isnt solved though.

I deleted my smtp configuration, and created it again. After this little procedure,
kmail does the job again.

So this is a way to work around.

No new input from OP.
Seem to be fixed.
If anyone else is having trouble, please change the state of this bug to New.
