    I am having a very difficult time setting up my mail to work with my .mac account.

    incoming is working fine, mail.mac.com
    outgoing is being very very difficult and will not work with the smtp.mac.com and i tried smtp.mail.yahoo.com i think and that wont work either.

    can someone please advise?

    Try going to Mail> Preferences> go to the 'Accounts' tab> Click on the 'Server Settings...'

    What is your Server Port?

    From Mail.app's own helpful help section:
