My email was working perfectly well, and then I decided to change my email address to avoid all the junk email I was receiving. Now I can only receive emails and not send them. I've tried the connection doctor. I've tried changing the port to 25, 465, and 587 and I selcted the use SSL option. NOTHING WORKS. Please help.

    If the outgoing mail (SMTP) server requires authentication, did you change the user name in its settings?

    Click the Show Details button in the Connection Doctor window. If there's any text in the drawer that opens, post it. Otherwise click Check Again and then post the text.

    You entered the wrong address for the outgoing mail server. It should be this:

     

    smtp.gmail.com

    Dear Linc,

     

    I'm having similar problems to glaserdc.  Mail in is all good.  SMTP out is offline and I can't get it to come online.  I've tried revisiting SSL on and off, ports, and deleting keychains then re-establishing.  Nothing is working.  It did work and now it doesn't.  I tried to reconfigure my outgoing mail server as listed above but it didn't work either.  I know very little about what I'm trying to do and would really appreciate some help.  My connection doctor details are as below:

    If I change the server back to what it was before ( the same as my iphone - which does send mail) this is the connection doctor note:
