I am suddenly having trouble sending mail.  I've checked my settings through ATT, they are correct and used their connection assistant which comes up as a green light.  I'm receiving mail but just can't send it.  They suggest delting the account online, but then I would lose everything.

 

I have one main account and 3 sub-accounts, same problem with all of them.  I have also run disc repair and the iMail troubleshooter and tried re-installing mail, but my iMac won't let me.

I have an iMac bought in 2007 with intel, running Snow Leopard and 3 Gigs RAM.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Mac Mail

    What happens when you try sending? Is it just new mail, or replies too? You imply that it was working - have you changed or updated anything? What does Mail's Window/Connection Doctor show?

    Where are you getting that big long log (which seems to be suggeting wrong userid/password)? You said "run disc repair and the iMail troubleshooter and tried re-installing mail, but my iMac won't let me". What is the iMail troubleshooter? Why won't your iMac let you reinstall mail?
