Yes, i understand that much, but are you dialed into juno at the time
or are you dialed into "primary pay account".
Almost nobody allows you to dial into A and send mail via B's smtp
server anymore. Too much spam happens.

Hold on thar pardner..... Pop accounts do not use SMTP.
Pop is for receiving, mail and smtp is for sending mail.
You can pop (receive) your mail from anywhere, but you can only
send via the ISP you are connected to.

In the same sentence, you said their smtp is disfunctional and then you
imply it works. Which is it? English is a tricky language. To what does
"it" refer in the last sentence?
The best I can tell from your descriptions, your problem is that these days,
the ONLY SMPT server you can use is the one provided by the ISP to which
you are connected. So if you dial ISP X then you send your mail to
smtp.x.com, (or whatever) but not to smtp.juno.com.
When you dial Juno, then send via juno.
However, I gotta point out that this is a Linux forum, and you might
have missed the fact that every SuSE release has a built in SMPT
server that you can use so that you are not dependent on your ISP.
