    i was just composing a few e-mails the other day and i clicked Send, but they only went to the Outbox. i checked under Sent Messages and they weren't there, they were still under Outbox. i can receive e-mail just fine, so i have no idea whats going on. does anyone know what could be causing this? is there something wrong with the Mac mail servers?

    ok, i just tried to send another e-mail. i clicked on send and the little arrows in the top right hand corner started spinning. the e-mail only went to outbox. i have sent e-mails before with no problems, but right now i've got 3 e-mails under Sent Messages and 11 e-mails under Outbox. is there something going on with the smtp server?

    Who is your ISP??? Have you been receiving email's but still unable to send any? I would suggest checking how the Mail app is configured, since a setting could have been lost (through no doings of you). If everything still looks good, then call your ISP and ask them WTF. I do know that the receiving and sending email server addresses are typically mail.(IPS) type format. For example, mine is mail.earthlink.net for both incoming and outgoing mail.

    you have to delete the mail and make a new one if that doesn't work try endoura or entourage if you have M$ office or some other email app will do
