Try reentering your mail account settings by launching Mail, clicking on Mail in the menu bar, choosing Preferences, then click on the Accounts tab at the top of the box. You'll have to get the proper mail settings from your Internet Service Provider.

ginavee, as I stated in my earlier post, we've no idea what settings you need to enter in your Mail account preferences. You'll have to go to your service provider's web site and see if they provide it in a support section there. For example, if you use Comcast as your service provider, the Comcast web site will have information on how to set up Apple's Mail program. You'll need, of course, your email account name and password.
You may be able to determine your Mail settings by looking at your iPad's Mail settings if you're able to send and receive email from that device.
