    Okay so I signed up for .mac yesterday and have set up the .mac account but I can't send or receive messages, anything I need to do? I've gone through the steps on the apple site and I did receive the 'welcome to .mac' email.

    Any suggestions?

    your outgoing mail server is configured wrong.

    go to mail>prefs>accts>acct information and set your SMTP properly.

    everytime i log into mail at a different access point that uses a different mail server, i have to set up a new SMTP

    examples:
    mail-hub.optonline.net
    mail.bellsouth.net

    it happens often when i use somebody's cable modem (wired or wireless)

    and i find i always have to delete the ones i'm not using – mail sometimes doesn't pick the correct default. delete the incorrect ones then quit mail and restart again.
    for some reason mail has a problem using the default setting you indicate and invariably picks the wrong one – not giving you the choice to re-send using the correct SMTP

    that should fix it
