I've never seen any problems with my Mac.com or POP accounts for school. What "authentication" problem are you seeing?Originally posted by tigerkachel
Since I installed 10.1.3 I cannot send mail anymore through yahoo or apple. It has a problem with the authentification. The same was true in 10.1.1 but was fixed in 10.1.2.
So right now it's a bit a burden to me because I have to go on to the web to be able to send mail.
Does anybody know if there is a workaround?
If you can't use your mac.com (iTools) account through Mail.app, then you have it configured wrong somehow. Not being able to use Yahoo is not surprising, as they very recently stopped offering free SMTP/POP3 access.Originally posted by tigerkachel

FWIW Apple is aware of the "damage your mailbox problem". If you haven't changed your network settings, don't worry, click open anyways and all will be ok.Originally posted by wwworry
Also I had some problems with "Open mail-box as read only? Otherwise you might permanently dammage your data" messages.
I used to have that problem all the time changing around my various mail readers. What I ended up doing was switching from POP to IMAP. All my e-mail is now stored on the server, and I can retrieve/see/organize it just like I could POP mail. I can now access and manage all my e-mail from any Internet-connected computer.Originally posted by wwworry
I think my big problem with it is that I can not use it if I boot into classic. I still need to do that for audio work though maybe in a few months...
I was thinking about switching to Mailsmith.
I had messages in OE and in Mail and that was no good.
One way to get around this would be to store your mail in its own directory on the server, and then to change your path prefix in your mail client. My mail is stored on the server in ~/mail. I just added the absolute path to my mail directory in the Account Path Prefix of Account Options in the preferences of Mail.app.Originally posted by Gelfin
I like Mail.app in general, but the one specific detail that keeps me from using it is the lack of proper folder subscription for IMAP accounts. If you have a mail account and a shell account on the same service, there is no way in Mail.app to avoid seeing every single file in your home directory appear as a message folder in Mail.app. The IMAP specification includes the idea of "subscribing" to folders which you want to see in your client. Entourage supports this. If Mail.app did, I might still be using it today.
