Does anybody know how do I configure SMTP for my SDF e-mail? I'm currently able to fetch mail using offlineimap, but I cannot send using SMTP on Emacs.

I tried every tutorial available that there is, and configured my secret with mkvpm, but my authentication just gets refused...

@alchemist SMTP problem is probably your username. It's not the same as imap or pop. It includes your domain. Mine is:

tomasino.sdf.org@sdf.org

See?

@tomasino That is pretty much what I did, but unfortunately I still get an authentication error when connecting to mx.sdf.org:587.

I hear that only some kinds of accounts can use this service, is there a practical way for me to check which "account type" I have?

@tomasino No luck :/ I'll keep trying... Thanks for the help
