I can't seem to get my Mac Mail client outgoing smtp settings correct. I am receiving fine but cannot send. My companies IT person does not have any Mac experience and has asked that I use webmail. Please help.
Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

    Hi hegd, and a warm welcome to the forums!

    Seems the IT person could tell you what port & what kind of Authentication is required!?

    The receiving email ports are:

    IMAP is port 143
    IMAP-SSL is port 993
    POP is port 110
    POP-SSL is port 995

    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.

    AHA! I'm pretty sure no Mail app can be used, that's for use in a Browser, might see if they have something like these...



    Also what is "TLS-wrapped"?

    It's automatic if you use port 465 going out, which is moot since they only gave you a webmail addy.

    Well, Tiger's version of mail is quite old & not as "smart" as it should be.
