    Hi all

    I just need to find out, is there a way of configuring multiple outgoing smtp servers? I bring my MBP in to work to edit photos when i am not busy and can connect to the internet via the wireless network, this enables me to browse and to download mail in outlook but if i want to reply and send those mails, i need to disconnect from the wireless network and plug in my 3G stick so i can send the mail out.. Obviously two different outgoing smtp servers because of the different connections..

    So, is there somewhere i can put both outgoing server details in so that i don't have to use the 3G stick while at the office?!?

    Assuming you are using a recent version of Apple's

    Mail > Preferences > Accounts

    In the Account Information tab, at the bottom, there is an SMTP servers list. IN the drop down you can select different SMTP servers and edit the list of SMTP servers.

    Hi samh

    Thanks for the reply.. I am using Outlook for Mac, i checked in there but can't see any additional space for smtp servers.. Would what you described work for my situation too?!

    Thanks for your time
