My Mail 2.1.3 quit working.   It won't accept a password I know is right.

I have a Dual 2ghz PowerPC G5.    I'm positive the password is correct because I enter it all the time in my other mac hardware/applications.   I tried deleting the mail account them re-adding it, it still rejects my password.    I can't update any of my software (nothing is available).  I've tried restarting the computer.

Safari still works.   All my other apps still work.   I selected PowerMac as the product on the pulldown menu, I hope that's the same as PowerPC.  My OS is 10.4.11

 

Anyone have any ideas?

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Mail 2.3.1(753.1)

    Hi, is this MobileMe or ,mac perchance?

     

    I think they're slowing nudging people to the fact that MobilMe & .mac is going away shortly in favor of iCloudinees!

    Get an iCloud account first.

    MobileMe & dot Mac will still work last I heard.

    iCloud Mail setup, even in 10.4/10.5…

    Don't delete your old account yet. Just setup a new one in Mail>Preferences>Accounts, little plus icon. Choose IMAP as account type, not ,mac or MobileMe.

    IMAP (Incoming Mail Server) information:

    • Server name: imap.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 993
    • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password

    SMTP (outgoing mail server) information:

    • Server name: smtp.mail.me.com
    • SSL Required: Yes
    • Port: 587
    • SMTP Authentication Required: Yes
    • Username: example@me.com (use your @me.com address from your iCloud account)
    • Password: Your iCloud password
