I have a MacBook Pro and an iPhone 4s.


I have an iCloud account.  I use Mail on the laptop and iPhone 4s.


On my MacBook Pro, mail is coming in.  But it will not go out.  When I try to send, I get the following message:

"Cannot send using the server  The sender address was rejected by the server."

I am given the choice of choosing a different server (iCloud or  Same result.


When I go to Mail preferences, and click on accounts, I note the following:

- Under "Account Information", the iCloud account is enabled.

- I have confirmed my password.


Meanwhile, I can send mail from my iPhone just fine.


Finally, I can log into iCloud and send from there.


Any suggestions?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Delete you iCloud account in Mail's Accounts preference pane and then add it back.  It should automatically set the correct server as you reenter your info.
