    I managed to set up my mail account on my iPhone no problem, but with when setting it up on my mac it can't connect to the server? And I get the following error:

    Looks like the wrong server port for mail to me... Try the default: 25, 465, 587. Open Mail on your Mac - Go to mail prefs / Accounts / Out-going mail server / Edit out-going mail server / Advanced / Select default ports. See if that doesn't fix your problem :)

    It is already on the default. The incoming mail server currently says mail.mac.com when I'm sure it should be mail.me.com but when I change it reverts back to mail.mac.com

    Any ideas anyone?

    Found out the problem and though I would post if it comes up on a search.

    Don't use Peerguardian. It blocks it.
