I'm not going to get around to trying that tonight, but here's an update on further pokings, more interesting than successful.

First, still using the fastmail smtp server - I tried unencrypted and TLS access, the first fails on port 25 in the same way as SSL, but the second gives an error from the remote server - so with TLS set, packets are actually leaving the neo although the connection fails. That seemed fair enough as I think I was wrong about TLS support at fastmail - I seemed to have been looking at an old page.

Ah - but my own mail server does support TLS. Damn - I get the original error message again, but after a long enough gap to suggest things are happening beyond the phone. Sure enough - in the mail servers logs now there is something (dunno why I did not see this a couple of days ago):-

2012-09-20 19:23:59 TLS error on connection from [x.x.x.x] (recv): A TLS packet with unexpected length was received.

2012-09-20 19:23:59 TLS error on connection from [x.x.x.x] (send): The specified session has been invalidated for some reason.

So why don't I see the Remote server closed the session error on the phone as I do with a TLS attempt at fastmail? I guess that could be different server behaviour rather than inconsistency with qtmoko

Enough for one night - will try Neils suggestion for further info over the weekend.
