No, it's a standard error that comes up when you try to send an email
(start a SMTP session from CM) when a SMTP session is already active.

The problem is that Claws-Mail will only have one SMTP session with a
server and any new instructions to start a new session are rejected
and the email is put in the queue.

You can easily replicate this by trying to "Send Now" an email that
is large enough to take a few seconds to send. While that mail is
sending "Send Now" another message.

One possible solution is allowing multiple SMTP sessions. It has its
own set of problems. :)

The other possible solution is to "queue" SMTP sessions. So when the
first ends, the second starts. This one has its own set of
problems too. :)

Anyhow, hope the above provides more info on what's going on.
