Hi, I have had and used apple mail for numerous years and usually it takes me only a few minutes in setting up an account. I changed the password on my bluehost mail (its logging into webmail) several days ago, and regardless of which setting I try now it is not connecting. The password and user are correct, I also tried various combinations of ports and no luck. Bluehost support yesterday said they reset the permissions and I need to wait a bit (as I have dynamic IP) and if not contact the client namely apple support. This was after changing the name servers to bluehost from my own site and various combinations of ports. Regards
