shentel has new email server & I can't smtp send

Greetings all;
shentel has fired gmail, so that account stopped working, without notice 
or fanfare about 14:30 local time yesterday.

I have now fixed my fetchmail & related scripts so that I can receive 
incoming emails from their new server.  On port 995

But setting that address in a kmail send account is not working, and 
kmail won't even show me the alternate sending server as a sending 
target.  A "check what the server supports" times out about a minute 
later as no contact hasa been made.

I'm fresh out of clues & could use some help.  

Like is there an alternate port number to try instead of 25 for smtp?


Cheers, Gene Heskett
