My wife has a MacBook Pro and I have an iMac, both using Tiger and both using Mac Mail with Gmail accounts. We frequently get errors when sending mail - mail cannot send so it puts the messege indefinately in my Outbox. We both recieve mail just fine.

The exact error is:

'This message could not be delivered and will remain in your Outbox until it can be delivered.

Sending the message content to the server failed.'

I tried changing my port 25 to 587 and it did not seem to work. Any ideas?

Thank you.
iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
