Currently Being ModeratedMar 2, 2008 9:34 AM (in response to Dave Everhart1)Assuming you’ve set up the account correctly (which I don’t know), take a look at what I suggested in this recent thread, in case it works for you:
Mail very sporadic in sending emails, sometimes not
lately, it has been saying it can't use the selected server,
so I switch it over to the .Mac server. No go, same message.
Not sure what you mean. You cannot use .Mac’s SMTP server to send from a non-.Mac address...
Mail has also been quitting a lot, lately, for no apparent
reason and after no particular activity.
There is no point in start troubleshooting this kind of problems without (properly) uninstalling first any Mail plug-ins you may have installed.
So do you have any Mail plug-ins? In the Finder, go to each of the following folders (if they exist). What do you see there?
To make accurately reporting this information easier, open /Applications/Utilities/Terminal, type the following command (you may just copy it from this post and paste it in Terminal), and press <Return>. You may then copy the output of that command from Terminal and paste it in your reply to this post:
ls -1 /Library/InputManagers /Library/Mail/Bundles ~/Library/InputManagers ~/Library/Mail/Bundles
Note: For those not familiarized with the ~/ notation, it refers to the user’s home folder. You can easily locate any of the folders referred to in this post by copying the folder path here, doing Go > Go to Folder in the Finder, and pasting the folder path there.iMac G5 17" (iSight), Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 2, 2008 9:47 PM (in response to David Gimeno Gost)Well, I'm certain the accounts are set up right...this issue has only come to light in the past month or two, really.
And, I know what you just said, but I tell you this: I have, previously, been able to send other mailboxs' mail via my .Mac account. I never thought to question it, 'cause I figured it was normal. Can't now, of course. No real issue though.
As for plug-ins: I have never knowingly added a plug-in to Mail. In fact, I was unaware that there even were plug-ins for Mail until you mentioned them.MB Pro 2.16, MDD 1.25, Mini 1.25 PPC, Mac OS X (10.4.10), 10.3.9
Currently Being ModeratedApr 9, 2008 11:01 AM (in response to Dave Everhart1)I was having the same issue. I'd hit send and the mail would sit in the out box forever until the familiar server error. Then after reading 900 posts I found that you can go into mail preferences/ accounts/ outgoing mail server/ edit servers from the pop-up menu and remove all unused servers. Even though I removed the old accounts last year, the server info was still in this popup menu; weird. Once removed, emails fly away without stalling or needing a mail restart.MacBook Pro 2.33GHz Intel Core2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2GB ram
