Currently Being ModeratedOct 22, 2008 12:59 AM (in response to Pentigoth)Yup..... same problem here, although it started last night after sending a mass of emails. I didn't change any settings.13" macbook, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 31, 2008 10:13 PM (in response to dogger73)Did any one ever solve this issue? I sent a few e-mails this evening as usual then this I started getting this message. I made no changes to anything in mail. I can send mail to myself but not to any one else. Connect Doctor indicates no problems connecting to the server. I did try the Windows solution by restarting the computer (which I've never had to do with a Mac!) of course it did not help. I have an AOL mail account and I can go to it through the AOL program and send mail just fine. But Mail is so much faster than AOL I'd like not to have to go back there.iMac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 1, 2008 12:20 PM (in response to ArabianDQ)I am having this problem as well. I am receiving emails, but cannot send any, even to myself. When I have contact me mail customer support in the past on different issues, they have told me there is no problem (when I know there is), so if someone else can figure this out, let us know. Thanks!MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.1)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2008 8:55 AM (in response to L3photographer)Me too, was Ok earlier today, I use Mac mail with AOL but it's not a Mac problem as the other computer on my network is a PC running outlook and it won't send mail either. It happened to me once before & I connected onto aol using https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp but this page doesn't seem to exist any longer.iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2008 9:02 AM (in response to DavidField)Just discovered how to reset AOL mail. Login to AOL mail via web. Try sending an e-mail to anybody, Before it will send another screen will come up asking to type in the characters in an image. Once that's done the e-mail works again. Hope this helps those who have the AOL problem.Mac OS X (10.5.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2008 3:45 PM (in response to Pentigoth)I signed my girlfriend up for MobileMe last night, and can't get her computer to send mail. At first I thought that it was a hardware problem, as her machine is reaching "dinosaur" status, but after reading some of these posts I see that people with intel macs are having the same issue...
Anyone have a clue what's going on? I've changed the port from 25, still nothing. Getting frustrated...iBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 1, 2008 4:51 PM (in response to DavidField)Not real sure about the instructions here, but I don't get a screen requesting that I type in the characters in an image. All I get after sending is the jumping AOL guy and a message that my mail has been sent.Powermac G5 Dual 2ghz, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2008 7:06 AM (in response to Pentigoth)This web site helped me with the same problem:
Essentially, you go into System Preferences and change a setting. I use Verizon and it
just stopped working for me even though I did not change anything. As soon as I
made the change, the mail went out. Good luck.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 15, 2008 10:55 AM (in response to BobKrchnavek)Hi Bob, and a warm welcome to the forums!
Thanks for the tip... indeed a strange cure that is!
Currently Being ModeratedDec 21, 2008 12:00 PM (in response to Pentigoth)I tried the one answer that seemed to help people (the Built in ethernet steps), but I am using Airport for internet connection, so this did not help me. Now that I have paid for this email, it would be great to be able to use it from my Mail app!!MacBook
Currently Being ModeratedJan 5, 2009 8:36 PM (in response to L3photographer)Hi,
Try doing this:
Change the number to 1492 as described above.
It worked instantaneously for me.
Good luck!Mac Book Pro 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.6)
Currently Being ModeratedJan 8, 2009 8:04 AM (in response to Pentigoth)hi - i posted this in another thread but meant to post it here - oops - i've been following this thread and others for days now - i also have been having safari/email 'sending message content to server failed'/flash 10 plugin problems since latest security/java/qt software update - here's what i recommend and what i'll be doing from now on - before i install any updates via software update i'll be saving the download/installers to a folder as suggested in another topic thread - next i'll be disconnecting my router - and connecting the modem directly to the computer - bypassing the router - once i'm sure configurations/internet/mail are functioning correctly i'll connect the router - all this time my problems were with my router port settings - not safari or flash 10 plugin or mail app - go figure - hope this helps - peace!PB G4 1.67GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
