Heres how I set it up for my test

Under Settings->configure Kmail->sending->add

Name : <whatever u want it name it>
Host :
Port : 587
Precommand: <leave empty>

Check Server requires authentication
Login: : <emailid>
Password : <your password>

Click on the security tab
Select TLS and PLAIN, or you can click <check what my server supports>

click ok and try it again.

If this doesnt work, i would suggest you try it with another email
client or another email client from behind another ISP.
