    I'm trying to set up apple mail but it asks for 'incoming mail server' and 'outgoing mail server' i havent got a clue what this means or where to find this information?

    I'm with sky broadband and also have a yahoo mail which i would want them both redirecting to all go to apple mail once it was set up.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi

    Thanks i got it set up, but now I'm in it i clicked on 'get mail' and it wont accept my password, which is exactly the same one as i told it!

    What do I next to collect my mail?

    Edit > P. s I since tried with some of the different port numbers it mentions now it doesnt ask for password just a little bleep but nothing is happening. Sometimes i get message about it cant authenticate the server and something about a name on a certificate not matching?

    Email and Smileys

    woo hoo! I did it! this old brain hasnt had such a work out since my uni days.. lol!

    This mail doesnt seem to display smileys either, neither does entourage from office 2004 which i copied across form my iBook (just in case i have the odd letter to type).

    On my search for smileys I did see some for OS X and Adium, at the time i choose to add more to adium but now I'm wondering if i downloaded the pack for OS X would I be able to use them in apple mail? (or entourage)

    I cant find the print option (in apple mail) either for if i need to to print any of my mail out?

    If not does anyone know a good mac-compatible mail program that has smileys, looks good and can collect all mail from one account and print some off if necessary like receipts for online purchases?
