    This is very basic stuff si I apologise in advance. I'm new to Macs but successfully migrated everything including 2 of my five email accounts but try as I might I just cannot seem to figure out three of them.
    I thought I'd followed all the same smtp entries, passwords etc but they just won't configure

    I am clearly doing something wrong but does anyone know of a good video/online tutorial.

    Thanks from a non techie who is determined to make all this work

    PS Great to find you all on this resource:)

    Hi Shelley,

    What kind of email accounts are they (e.g. exchange, hotmail, gmail etc.)?

    emails

    Thanks Satori

    They are based on my web addresses and receive them from my Hostgator accounts.

    I've entered all the mail. and smtp. addresses that were in my Outlook accounts. I've also tried switching from IMAP to POP but to no avail

    Thanks:)
