Yes, that's what I also have, my own imap server... But I have moved the imap server out of my home, but I still like to use my own smtp server at
home, because of the speed of sending emails... :)

But I guess doing this automatic is not possible and since it is only me using the smpt server at home, I can add smtp authentication at home for my
user, this seems to be the easiest solution...
