I think that the treatment of Outgoing SMTP servers which have no
usernames is indeed broken by the iceape-mailnews security patch.
A workaround which works on my system:
1. Open the browser with "iceape -browser about:config".
2. Filter "smtp".
3. Check "mail.smtp.defaultserver" is "smtp1".
4. Set "mail.smtpserver.smtp1.auth_method" to 0.
5. Right click on "mail.smtpserver.smtp1.username" and select Reset.
