Well, whenever I install a debian I make a point of never intalling a
network manager. I probably should check, but I believe there's only wicd.
I should have mentioned that in my note. As you suggest, no access to the
network manager is likely to generate a different error. The error I get
suggests to me that Claws is misconfigured, but I didn't change anything
and the configuration looks OK to me.  Since I can sent mail from the
machine and browse the web, the wicd is working properly.
