You are sending from a Virgin connection aren't you?  Virgin will not
allow sending of emails by SMTP except when connected to their system
and logged in from your own broadband connection.  When I'm away, I send
via a GMX connection and make the 'from' field in Evolution my own
address. (Thunderbird can do this too).

I agree with current thinking about a netbook.  My Dell Mini 10v came
with Ubuntu pre-installed and is small and light enough to pop in my
hand luggage along with loads of other stuff.  I use UbuntuOne to sync
with essential stuff from my PC and as e-mails are imap (even on Virgin)
they auto sync nicely.  I would have difficulty making all of that
happen on any current tablets I've looked at.
