I have checked the outgoing port (587) & smtp address SSL is ticked & password and user correct but it just says cannot connect to the server on port 587. The settings are all the same on my Ipad & Iphone and they are able to send emails but not my MacBook.. I am at a total loss as to what to do. I have even tried to delete the account and make a new one but still is will not send. To add to this further I have now resorted to using Outlook 2011 and set up the accounts with exactly the same details and can send emails on that but would prefer to use macmail so really want to sort it. Can anyone help please??

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
