    Hi,

    I have several Locations (ie, the MacOS locations that sort things like Network Settings, proxies and that sort of thing) set up on my MacBook Pro.

    I was just wondering whether or not it's possible to set up multiple outgoing mail servers in Mail, which switch depending on what location is selected for Mac OS.

    Main reason is that I use Mail to receive all my uni communications, and when at uni, they have a different server as when I'm at home.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

    Not that I know of. The settings in Mail.app are independent of those in System Preferences. Perhaps it's different in Australia but why would you need to use different outgoing mail servers for different locations? Regardless of location setup in System Preferences, any outgoing mail server should work.

    For some reason I only seem to be capable of sending if the outgoing server matches that of the ISP at any given location
