View Full Version : Help with Mountain Lion mail?

May 15, 2012, 06:37 AM
Wonder if anyone knows a fix, if it's just a flaw with the latest update or i'm missing the point. I have no iCloud issues with my iPhone or through Safari on iCloud.com.

Since latest ML update... I have setup, started from scratch etc with my iCloud account several times, played with the ports and the P** IMAP outgoing, SSL etc and I still cant send an outgoing message from iCloud without physically changing the outgoing server to the @me.com> from the @me.com>>.

I can't change to the @me.com> from @me.com>> as standard server in preferences becasue the only server that exists is 'iCloud' or gmail (Which I never use as outgoing).

Now I did try setting up an independent outgoing server, following the iCloud prefs, how ether it constantly fails unless I manually change the outgoing before I send the mail.

Note that on error sending it says sending from gmail, which I don't have permitted in prefs.

Solved it with no particular sense.

Amended under prefs>composing>Send new messages from selected mailbox

Doesn't make too much sense how that erased the @me.com>> option from the list but it's worked. Trail test done on send from @me account only and it went straight back to the same error.
