Entourage nonsense...

Out of the blue my Entourage is acting up.

I try to send e-mail ( i can receive it ) I get this bugger...

http://img67.exs.cx/img67/5310/entourage.jpg

Now I have everything clicked so my entourage should be using the same pass/username to authenticate the SMTP server...

yet i still get that error message..

any help/suggestions would be greatly apperciated.

If you didn't do anything, it's the SMTP server with your ISP. Either contact them or wait a while. My Yahoo account kicks off everynow and then with Mail.app mainly because I have it check every 5 minutes.

In all probability, your SNMP server does not require authentication. While messing around, you probably checked "SNMP server requires authentication." Uncheck it.

Ok, Im losing my mind....

When the "SNMP server requires authentication." ( though I think its SMTP ) is unchecked I get ...

Yet I can still recieve mail.....

ugh.

EDIT: I tried setting up my e-mail in my Mail.app and I get the same thing....so I am I safe to assume this has something to do with my websites SMTP server ?

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol. It has to do with whoever your email account is with. If it's smtp.yourisp.com, then it's your ISP, if it's smtp.yourdomain.com then it's yours.

What do you mean that you can't contact your ISP?

I've been tearing m hair out with the same problem for the last couple of days, and I've come to suspect that the problem is with Entourage itself. Entourage always worked well for me in the past, but my new ISP requires SMTP authentication (my email username and password), and it seems that the authentication protocols that Entourage uses are faulty. When I configure mail.app with exactly the same SMTP authentication info as I've entered in my Entourage account settings, it sends mail fine. I spoke to the tech support folks at my ISP, and they told me that my Entourage account settings was correct.

So... Microsoft has implemented some non-standard version of a public standard. Go figure. Grrrrr!

I got DSL through SBC Yahoo and I can't get Entourage or Mail to work. I get similar errors. I have checked and unchecked in every machination I think. I finally gave up and am using web mail only. I hate it. Can't even change font colors, sizes, styles. Then when it opened today with "Today's Tip", I read a tip telling me to use different fonts, colors, sizes etc. I clicked on the link and it just opened a compose page that STILL has no options to change text in any way. UGHHH! Is this a Mac thing? Another form of discrimination?
