I used to be able to email from within iPhoto with no problems. My latest macbook Pro came with iPhoto 11 installed.

 

I have tried to email photos from within iPhoto 11 with no success. All of my email accounts are working fine, when I try to mail within iPhoto I get the error message that my email server did not reply. I am frustrated with this as it all worked perfectly before.

 

Any answers please?

 

Thanks

    You did not mention that you had done this, so if you have not.....

     

    Open iPhoto

    Click the iPhoto menu in the upper left hand corner of the screen

    Click Preferences

    Click the General tab

     

    Next to "Email photos using"......have you selected the mail application that you want to use?

     

    Click the Accounts tab to verify that the settings for your mail application are entered here.

    Hi Alison -  I have been having the same issue with my desktop.  Also, a sudden thing.  Now, I have a new Macbook Pro and it is doing exactly the same thing.  I was wondering if you ever got an answer.   I spent quite a bit of time with Apple today,  but got no resolution.

    You know that there is a greater range of templates available in Mail than in iPhoto, right?

    Alison -  I got both my desktop and Macbook Pro to send a photo from email.  I was on the phone with Apple support to explain that neither one of my devices would send a photo. 

    *Mail > Preferences>Accounts> Account Information

    In the Outgoing Mail Server (STMP) smtp.mail.me.com.  Check "Use only this server"

    Then go to Advanced with this Account (mine is ICloud).  Enable this account and Include when automatically checking....should both be checked

    Port:  mine was 993 and "Use SSL" is checked. 

    Authentication:  Password.  Check in "use IDLE Command if server supports it. 

     

    I don't know why this was suddenly changed a few months back.  Now that I have upgraded to ICloud, it was all a bit confused.  I had a mobile me account and gmail.  Now I have gmail and Icloud. 

     

    Hope this works for you.  If it doesn't make sense, let me know.  I will TRY to help.

    Note - there setting are specific to your e-mail service - each user needs to get the appropriate settings from their e-mail service - many are different and your settings may not work with a different e-mail vendor

    Thanks for the feedback--this helped me send it from my email account. However, it did not help me send it from within iPhoto. I have Lion and this seems to be a feature of iPhoto 11, but it is not working for me to send from within iPhoto. I keep getting  a message saying  my email server and password do not match. If anyone knows how to fix that I'd love to hear it.

    I am struggling with the same issue.......I've checked w/ my email service, and have confirmed that my settings are all correct.......

     

    It would be really great if APPLE could see to this problem, as it renders this feature useless.....

     

    Has anyone else had luck?

     

    BTW, i remain on Snow Leopard, didn't want to mess up a good thing there.......

     

    thanks.

    also......FYI.....I have tried, in Preferences, to say "send photos via iPhoto", switched it to via Mail...I have the correct outgoing server info, the correct port, etc....... I contacted my email provider, and could not see any issue....   No matter what I try, it continues to say that it 'can't connect to the server"....... but my regular email works just fine......

     

    please help.........
