    If she can receive mail from AOL then check the settings for the SMTP server (out-going mail) under Mail>preferences>accounts>AOL account. Compare them with yours.

    Are you using IMAP and did you allow Mail to set the account up for you (or your Mom) ?

    I'm sure that you configured hers just like yours but just to make sure, check to see if you set her outgoing as SMTP with a server name of smtp.aol.com and use port 587 and you have her screen name (without the @aol.com) and password correct. I think that's about it. -GDF
