    I have a .mac account, I can recieve e-mails but I can not send them from mail, instead I have to go to www.mac.com to send them which is a pain sometimes.

    the stmp.mail.com server I think That is what it is called keeps on timing out. Any ideas, I don't think I inputted anything wrong in the system because system preferences did it for me. Please Help

    Hi,

    I have attached a file with some details of my send mail settings.

    If you enter mail and go to :

    Menu - Mail - Preferences...

    Edit the account for .Mac

    Under outgoing server select the options:

    I have attached a file showing my outgoing server details. I could be wrong (as I have a few outgoing smtp addresses but)... You should authenticate when sending mail aswell...

    Any one else?

    Hope this helps

    Andrew

    thanks but the problem is that the settings that you have is exactly what I have, do you think I have to phone Apple up to talk about this problem, or do you think I should wait until I have panther.



    I have to apologize for my spelling I used the spell check in safari but I am out of my head with drunkenness.

    I have sexy Hair one girl Said!!!
