Error sending mail... A error occured in the proto

Error sending mail to: johnm@mydomain.com A error occured in the protocol.

Two issues: (1) 'A error' should be 'An error'. (2) where's the log file that shows what the error was?

"A error," huh? :)

Usually this indicates connectivity problems between your server and the outgoing mail (SMTP) server you specified...

I don't think there's a log file. The best thing to do is follow the troubleshooting steps:
