here's to hoping someone out there can help.


Since the Lion install, one email account in Mail does not work. I tried deleting and re-installing the account and (with the help of tech support) toggling SSL settings and ports, but it still would not work. Interestingly, the account still works on iPad and iPhone. But the same settings do not work on the desktop Mail. Sending email to the account is received on mobile devices sans problem.


I'm afraid at this point to sync the macbook with iPad and iPhone for fear the devices will automatically stop receiving mail as well. What gives?


Grateful for any tips!




macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
