BJ, Yes, this is normal, and not relevant to your problem. I don't
think you would get the error you're getting if you weren't talking
to their SMTP server.

It sounds like you have SeaMonkey configured to use Authentication,
and Charter doesn't want that. However, as you indicate you don't
have that set, I don't know what else it could be. Perhaps you need
to set "Use Authentication", exit SeaMonkey, then restart it and
clear that selection and see if it works.

To be sure we're talking about the same settings, go to Edit ->
Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings, Outgoing Server (SMTP) then
select your SMTP server and click on the Edit button.

Under Security and Authentication, make sure "Use name and password"
is not checked. Under Use secure connection, select No.

Note: I'm not using 2.0 yet, so there may be a 2.0-specific issue
