    when i use the mail app, i can recieve, read, and browse my mail fine, but when i got to email something out, i get this error This message could not be delivered and will remain in your Outbox until it can be delivered.

    The server "smtp.mac.com" refused to allow a connection on port 25



    i have a .mac account, and it works fine through the website (www.mac.com)


    can someone help me? thanks

    I use my ISP's outgoing mail server to send e-Mail with my .mac account. Maybe that will work better?

    Thanks mate!
    I don't normally have this problem... but occasionally when i travel and forgot to turn off my own ADSL modem (my ISP only allows one connection at a time), I have to use my brothers dial up ISP, and they block Port 25.

    Normally I just access mail via web based services... but thanks for the tip!
