[REBOL] Problems sending email (IP only)

From: tim-johnsons:web at: 31-May-2007 14:09

I'm using kubuntu 7.04 (feisty fawn, amd 64) I *am* able to send and receive email without problem using kmail with either my internal mail server (localhost) or my ISPs smtp server. But look here - here's what happens with rebol:
>> set-net[] >> send "hello from rebol"
** Access Error: Cannot connect to ** Where: open-proto ** Near: smtp-port: open [scheme: 'esmtp] either only ;; Now I use the IP address for the smtp server:
>> set-net[] >> send "hello from rebol" ;; works!
The same happens if I use "localhost" vs. Does anyone have any ideas why this happens? Don't have this problem on my slackware 10.0 box. Also, I don't have this problem with python scripts. python's smptlib module happily sends using server names. thanks tim
