    I'm able to recieve emails but I'm unable to send any. Could it be that the firewall is up or that my connection is through a route?

    well what Service are you tying to get to work with mail?? GMail for instance you have to manually configure all of the ports, bout incoming and outgoing

    Thanks for your help. I check on .Mac and it said some ISP's block port 25, so I had to change it.

    are you on a POP3 service? if so check your outgoing SMTP setting, its usually something like outgoing.yourprovider.com but it varies by provider.
