    I have a Mac desktop, I connected the mail up to a hotmail account and it worked fine. Then it stopped sending emails, eventhough it could still recieve them.
    I checked all the settings but couldn't find any issues every time I tried to send an email it said the server wouldn't work.
    As a result I deleted the account, then set up a new one which again could recieve emails. Although now I have 2 problems
    • There is an email from the old account which is constantly trying to send with the old server, even after I deleted the message from the outbox
    • I still cannot send emails from this account

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Double check your settings. These types of issues are almost always a misconfiguration in the settings.

    Mac Mail suddenly won't send

    I just experienced the same problem. Running Lion. Checked and re-checked all my settings, which incidentally are the same as on my MacBook Pro which sends messages just fine. Spent an hour with Apple tech support without resolving the issue.
    I suspect it would be a good step to try trashing the Mail preferences file but not sure how to access Library in Lion.....
