    I am using a trial version of .Mac so I can suss it out before buying the full membership but I am having problems setting up the .Mac email.

    If I try to set it up as IMAP email, it doesn't send or recieve emails and it won't verify my account setting. But if I set it up as POP3 email it works fine (I want IMAP because of the syncing aspect)

    I have tried setting the email up on OSX Mail app, Entourage and my iPod Touch and get the same problem each time.

    Does anyone have any ideas about how to resolve this?

    Mail has .mac settings specifically for .mac email. Use those. It is trivial to setup and it works flawlessly.

    Do you think I prefer sitting here typing on these things???

    I have tried resolving the problem. I spent an hour on to a .Mac Support rep trying to resolve the problem and have not been able to resolve it.

    Has anyone useful got any suggestions? Thanks

    Your Mac is supposed to set up all the .Mac stuff for you, once you enter your .Mac user name and password into the .Mac System Preferences pane. If it's not working, try deleting your information from there, clicking Show All for the change to take effect, then going back, re-entering it, and clicking Show All for the change to take effect.
