Kmail-multiple smtp??

I am curreently running Kmail 1.9.5 (on Debian testing) and for a while now I have lost the ability to send e-mail via multiple smtp's. I have three smtp setup, one is my ISP NTL, one is yahoo web mail which is delivered to pop on kmail and one is gmail which is delivered to a pop box on kmail.

Now when I open a new mail window and select my NTL account (or gmail) from the "Identiy" bar at the top of the window Kmail will still attempt to send the e-mail via yahoo and fail. Yahoo is listed as the default account but I was able to do this a while ago until an upgrade (can't remember which one) and now it trys to send everything via yahoo smtp.

Is there a way round this??

RE: Kmail-multiple smtp??

You can specify a SMTP server with each identity (look for the Special Transport option).
