Package: reportbug
Version: 6.3.1

Dear Maintainer,
I have sometimes problem that SMTP-connection doesn't work but web-browsers
e-mail work. Is it able to get an option that if reportbug cannot do SMTP-
connection, it gets an option to get same way right e-mail address, topic
and correct
report to GTK+? Then it's easy to make new mail in browser, copy-paste all
is needed in right form and then push "Send" without someone is crying that
bugreport was invalid or it has no packet, not enough information etc..

I have no idea what's problem, SMTP-connection worked but now I have tried
almost everything but Reportbug cannot connect to SMTP of Gmail.

I want to help maintainers but I think that programs and operating system
only the platform to my another jobs and projects, these aren't my whole
and, I of course have to make work with errors at my projects, I want to let
maintaining and fighting with Debian to persons who are better and do jobs
corresponding my own skills. I think that it doesn't work if I continuously
have to fight with errors which aren't my strenghts or if bug-reporting
goes too difficult, I have of course better job than swearing and suffer..

And of course, this went to wrong address on first time and it seems that
third time doesn't worked, this is why I reported this bug..
