I'm just getting started with mu4e after using Gnus for about a year. The sending of mail seems similar between the two, but mu4e hangs when I try to send mail and finally fails with the error:
network-stream-open-starttls: Failed connect: connection timed out.
Here's my .emacs.d:
;; * mu4e (require 'mu4e) (setq mail-user-agent 'mu4e-user-agent) (setq mu4e-maildir "/home/steven/mail/") (setq mu4e-sent-folder "/sent") (setq mu4e-drafts-folder "/drafts") (setq mu4e-trash-folder "/trash") (setq mu4e-maildir-shortcuts '(("/archive" . ?a) ("/inbox" . ?i) ("/sent" . ?s))) ;; smtp mail settings (setq message-send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it) (setq smtpmail-smtp-server "example.server.com")
Is there anything here that would foul sending a message? If not, where might I look next for the cause of this behavior, or what experiment might I run to deduce the problem?
