I use the Apple Mail client to view email accounts from yahoo and godaddy. I can receive mail on both accounts, but can suddenly send mail on neither account.


It worked fine up until yesterday and I changed nothing! Pls help.


I'm running OS 10.6.8

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Go Mail preferences>acconts tab, account info and make sure the SMTP outgoing server is set to the correct one no none

    In the advanced tab imap is empty on mine as well port 993 and ssl checked is correct enable this acct should be checked.


    Your outgoing (SMTP) server should be your email address here. Try clicking use only this server for testing purposes. You may try writing down all the info in accounts pane for this account, and delete it and then recreate it using the + and - buttons in the accts left side bar. One other thing is that yahoo is not going to be using "classic mail" as of early June, you might want to click the "Try New Mail" button on the web mail page if you are still using classic. I did this as well during my issue with this with yahoo. I don't know if this had anything what so ever to do with it, but I was just going thru everything. I recreated it all so I can not be certain what exactly fixed it.


    Hope some of this helps,
