[MlMt] cannot send email via fastmail in mailmate

I had this problem a few days back with both my fastmail and gmail 
accounts showing the same. A Fastmail person was very helpful and after 
following instructions the problem ended. He suggested:

reconfigure the email client from scratch:
   - Delete all existing email client settings
   - Reboot/restart the machine
   - Reconfigure it from scratch using the server details here:
   - Make sure that you delete the existing app password for the client 
from your account and create a new one while reconfiguring the client.

The screenshot on the FM site for mailmate configuration shows no 
numbers for the ports when actually they are required and this is 
mentioned in other of their documents. I think it was this confusion 
plus some caching issues which were causing problems.
