YAY! I've kind of got this solved and don't have to send from Hotmail 
anymore :-)))

I was able to resolve this issue by downloading and installing 
Thunderbird to use instead of Evolution.  As soon as I fired off an 
email there were NONE of the delivery problems that I had with Evo. 
Weird. That exercise proves that my original problem was just with Evo. 
  Anyone else had problems with the latest version of it that came with 
the K12LTSP 4.2.0 isos?

I guess I'll go through the exercise of migrating all my old mailboxes 
to Thunderbird.  Like I needed the extra work. I guess I was also 
dismayed about Evo being picked up by Novell as a paid product anyway :-(
