I am trying to email a photo album from iPhoto but keep getting an error message that the server doesn't recognize my email/password combo.  Please help!

    iPhoto Menu ->

     

     

    Preferences ->

     

     

    Accounts ->

     

     

    Delete and recreate your email settings.

     

     

    Alternatively, use Apple's Mail for the job. It has Templates too - and more of them.

    When emailing photos using iPhoto, you are not logging into the mail server to send your mail, you are logging into the iCloud server to send your mail (that's why you won't see a copy in the sent mailbox of your client).  You need to use your iCloud password, when selecting to email photos using iPhoto.  If you select email photos using Mail, then use the same email password you use with your mail client.

    that is not corect - you are logging into the email server that you specify in the preferences - it might be iCloud - it might be a different service

     

    The solution to the OP's issue is to have the correct information entered for their account  --  or to switch to using Mail as the email client
