My main mail system is IMAP on Windows Exchange. Seamonkey reads the e-mails, and also all newsgroups. BUT when I try to send e-mails, it reads the IP address of the server and treats it as an SMTP server - which it isn't.
This was handled correctly in NS7.2.

This stops me sending any out-going e-mails.

Reproducible: Always

we don't read the ip address of a server and guess if it's an imap or smtp server. You tell us what the server is, and we use it as such. 

We can only send mail via an smtp server. So either I don't understand your bug report, or something's wrong in your configuration.

No reply from reporter.

SeaMonkey v1.0.x is not supported anymore.
NS7.2 is not our product (and is maybe even older).
