[Users] I can receive mail but not send

   I have been using claws-mail for several years.  After
I changed the server used for sending mail, receiving has
continued to work but not sending.

   When I closed claws-mail after a failure, my screen

> Warning SSL connection failed (A TLS packet with
> unexpected length was received)
> Warning couldn't start TLS session

   I reproduce below part of ./claws-mail/claws.log

   Any advice on how to fix things would be appreciated.
