    In Mail's Window Menu, choose Connection Doctor, any red dots for status, if so what is the exact message?


    Then click the Show Details button & Check again.


    The Password rejection can confuse people since it's a catch all meaning...


    This Password, Username, Authentication method... is not recognized on this Port to this Server.


    If WebMail works in a browser, it's not Name or Password, but one of the other ones.



    The receiving email ports are:


    IMAP is port 143

    IMAP-SSL is port 993

    POP is port 110

    POP-SSL is port 995

    Outgoing ports are...

    SMTP and SMTP-SSL is on ports 25, 587 and 465. Port 587 has to be SSL, and port 465 is enforced TLS-wrapped and is generally used by Outlook users.

    Whew, just checked my hotmail account, can't send, but do recieve... likely since they switched to Outlook instead... I rarely use it.


    I can login to & it says my account is blocked unless I provide a mobile phone#, I've never so much as touched a Cell Phone.


    I can read mail in the Outlook or Apple's Mail, but cannot send from either, so login at & sse if you get the same.
