    I'm gonna try to sync my regular mail account, my iCloud mail account, address book, iCal etc. I'm trying to take advantages of advantages of Lion's features.

    First Question:
    Can I have the emails coming in to my iCloud email and my regular emails to collect in Mail?

    I have a Mail.com account (www.mail.com) and the iMap and POP servers on the website say they are:
    POP3: pop.mail.com
    SMTP: smtp.mail.com
    iMAP 4: imap.mail.com

    I believe Mail.com is powered by AOL because I can login using my regular username and password on the AOL website. My mail.com account is geekygeek@techie.com. The website lets you choose from around 50 different domains when you register. I have set up my mail.com account on my iPhone with no problems. I think I used AOL servers back then.

    This is my first problem. If this gets solved, I'll continue with syncing and ask you guys more questions as more obstacles occur.

    EDIT: I tried using those servers about a month ago without success. I just randomly tried again and IT WORKED! I can receive just find, but if I try to send I see this http://imgur.com/NszDP

    Problem Two:
    I can't get the mail.com to send emails. I see this if I try http://imgur.com/NszDP :confused:


    Question three:
    How can I delete contact groups in Address Book?
    I have 3 groups that say untitled group, how can I delete them? They don't have any contacts in them. :confused:


    Lined to Question 3
    I got the untitled groups out after going to iCloud.com and editing it. Why can I not delete the groups in address book it self?

    Question 4
    I can add more options to contacts like anniversary dates, birthdays and stuff. I can't in address book. :confused:
