I recently started using iCloud on my iMac and iPad. I am using for email on my iMac using the Mac mail application. Since I started using iCloud, I can't send email through my account. I receive email as before, but can't send it using the cox outgoing mail address. I can only send my email if I switch to my iCloud account. I have setup the iCloud account as per the Apple instructions with a different email address and can send and receive mail on that account.

Other people that use my iMac have email systems that don't include the iCloud and their mail works as normal.

When I try to send email on my I get a message saying that it can't use the cox outgoing mail address( and if I switch to the ( address, I still can't send the email. I have to switch to the iCloud account to send the email. I have tried going into my mail preferences and make things correct, but I can't get around this problem.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks barr

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
