I see several problems here:

1) (I suspect) you mistyped "smtp" in "smpt" everywhere.

2) You mistyped ":0" at the end of your question; it is ".0".

3) the SMTP port is not specified along with the SMTP server name in
the General tab; it is specified in the Advanced tab, and needs not be
specified at all if it is the standard SMTP port.

Now, why did Claws Mail add ".0" to the mistyped server name, I have no
idea, but I guess this should be fixed by setting the right SMTP
server name and port in the right places.
