I only bought this Macbook about 2 weeks ago and it's my first laptop, and first mac - so I'm still learning. When I first booted it up it asked if I wanted to activate my .Mac trial, and later I realized that my Mail settings and iChat settings were set for a .Mac account. I fixed the iChat so I can get my AIM/AOL buddy list, and changed some things to receive my e-mail to my aol.com address, but I am not able to send mail out. The original account's description it has my email@example.com, which is okay. But the actual e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org (which doesn't exist). So I thought to make an iMAP account to throw my aol.com SN in there and it's description in Mail Pref is IMAP Account, e-mail address my correct email@example.com. For this the income mail server is imap.aol.com, and the outgoing is smtp.aol.com. I am not sure where I am going wrong but I couldn't send a simple e-mail to my mom on her PC. I am guessing the .mac account I made my accident is screwing something up and I don't know how to deactivate it, delete it, or make my aol.com account the primary. Any help!? Thanks!
