can't send mail in kmail via smtp

Kmail (1.2 on KDE 2.1.1) is lying to me. It tells me it sends my outgoing

mail to my ISP, but the emails are never received on the other end. I get

no warnings or error messages, and I've checked with my ISP to make sure

the outgoing mail server name is correct. The only way I found this out is

that some messages I sent out were not received by the intended recipients,

so I sent a test message to myself--never received it.

In the sent-mail folder, the last messages that I know were received have

the kmmsgold.png icon next to the, but the ones that weren't have the

kmmsgsent.png icon next to them. I don't recall changing any settings, but

these icons pretty clearly mark when the messages stopped going out.

I can receive messages just fine, but I have to use the web-based email on

my ISP to send anything; needless to say, this is a hassle.

Anyone know what this means, and what I can do?
