    The last few days, Mail on my iMac has stopped receiving email. I receive email on my iPhone, and on my iPod, but NOT on my iMac. Ive done nothing to change the program preferences, and in preferences, it should be checking for email every 5 minutes. My accounts are all there as they were before.
    Any suggestions from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

    In the sidebar to the left of where it says Inbox is there a grey circle with a ~ in it? That means the account(s) are offline, click the circle and it should take your account(s) back online.
