This morning I just updated to lastest software.   Now none of my e-mail accounts will send out.  I am able to receive but not send.  Have powered down and back on.  Checked all I know to check and I cannot figure out why I am having this issue.

Imac Dual Core, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    The important points to check are the password and the outgoing mail server.

    Which software did you update?  Asking because your profile shows you are still using OS 10.6.4.  You should update to the last version, OS 10.6.8.


    Did you repair permissions and restart your computer after you updated whatever it was you updated?  If not, suggest that you do so now and again after you update your OS.


    Which email client are you using?  If a 3rd party one, have you contacted their tech support?  If not, why not?

    If using Mail, post in their forums in the OS system area that is currently installed on your computer.

    My information shows that I am using 10.8.2 OS version.  I am not sure what you mean by repair permissions, but I did restart my computer after the updates.

    Open Utility disc (under Utility). Select your Hard drive and find the Repair Permission button.


    (Sorry: My system is in Italian... you may have a different name for your Har Disc.

    Repairing permissions, though immensely popular, is an utter waste of time unless you have an indication of a permission error involving system files, which you don't and probably never will, or a boot failure.
