    Hi Forum,

    I am a 3 month new Mac user and the transition has been great. Not ever a glitch until right now. Anyone ever have this issue?

    I tries to email today from my imac and as I was typing the following kept popping up:

    The SMTP server “smtp.mac.com” rejected the password for user “my screen name”

    Please re-enter your password, or cancel.


    When I re-entered my password, the same screen kept coming up. And then, this one popped up...

    Alert

    There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Check the settings for account “my screen name@mac.com” or try again.

    The server error encountered was: The connection to the server “mail.mac.com” on port 993 timed out.


    However, my connection is fine.

    Any takers out there who know what's up?

    -CFS

    Thanks. Makes me feel better. Does Apple usually do this often? Is .mac reliable for the most part?

    yeah ... this is a bit frustrating. I too have had a .mac mail account for about two years or so now and this is by far the longest time the service has been down. Perhaps this is tied to some kind of upgrade for tomorrow? Or, something could have simply crashed ...
