The username typically is the e-mail address itself. The SMTP server itself does not have an @ symbol. It usually is the same as the POP3 or IMAP server, though sometimes is smtp.server.com. The port typically is 587, though sometimes is 2626, or 2662.An Apple user since 1981, Mac OS X (10.6.7), - * Links to my pages may give me compensation.

The Mail version I am using is 2.1.1.
2.1.3, have you done all the updates to 10.4.11?
Looks like Port 587 IS needed...

That was it! I looked too closely at all of the settings too many times apparently. Thanks to you I discovered I had an @ instead of a period.
