    I am attempting to set mail up on my new MacBook and it won't except my proper password to my email account. Why does this happen constantly? It's not even the issue of mail constantly asking for a password as it is notorious for, but it won't even accept the proper password. What do I do?

    Is this just a dumb question or am I doing something totally wrong?

    you can't access yahoo's mail service from an external client (apple's mail program, for instance) unless you upgrade to yahoo plus mail which allows for pop access.

    Neither. I have this problem with .Mac mail sometimes. The cause isn't on your end - just wait a while, and try again later, and it will usually work, assuming you have the account set up properly.

    Mac Mail will not connect to mail system - password fails

    I have this same problem with a standard POP mail server. The strange part is I have one set up on the same server different mail account and it works fine. I have deleted the account multiple times and it still does not see the POP password. Any ideas I have been attempting this for weeks now. :confused:
