If you cannot send messages to AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo and other similar
You will need to change the way your computer will identify to the
remote server. Open the Settings window, choose 'Advanced' tab, and
press the Settings button next to the 'Server identity for HELO
handshaking command' label. Try to change the server identity setting in
the Settings screen to mail.yourserver.com.

For example, if your email address is joe at someserver.com set the HELO
handshaking identification to mail.someserver.com. Try also with only
someserver.com format.
