    I recently converted all of my e-mail accounts to gmail just so i could use Mail. I have had problems with my contacts trying to send me emails and me sending them. mainly with other Gmail users. is this mail or is Gmail not worken right? my contact who also uses Gmail says he has been having problems as well

    hmm, i just did the auto setup. that might be a problem, but that still dosnt explain my clients issue with gmail so that makes me still think its something within the servers.

    Yup.. don't do the auto...... it doesn't use the imap by default.

    OP:
    Did you go back and use the settings that angelwatt showed you? Those steps are the best way. The other thing you have to check is to make sure that in your gmail settings you are set-up for IMAP. To do so log into gmail, go to settings and then click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP POP/IMAP settings. In the IMAP portion make sure it is enabled. If you follow these instructions it should work

    in gmail, it will do that, then within Mail, you can send it from a different server (yahoo!)

    but thats alot of configuration to use yahoo with mail, why not just convert to gmail?

    *i believe you can also configure the send settings within gmail itself, not sure if this extends to mail
