I took a still picture today with my camera. I wanted to send it to  friend of mine through E-mail. Anyway, when I tried to send it, it ended up in iPhoto, and when I tried to then use the iPhoto E-mail portal, I was told, "The email server didn't recognize your username/password comboination." I didn't understand this, but I found another way to send it (picture to desktop>E-mail attachment), I can do this in the future, but I want to understand why I couldn't use the standard iPhoto route. What username/password and when? I wasn't asked for this today.

    Go into iPhoto's General preference pane and change the email client from iPhoto to Mail. Mail is more stable, versatile than iPhoto's client, gives you a sent message and has photo templates under the Stationary section if one is needed.

    That was easy. Thanks a lot.


    Sorry, I wanted to say that you solved my problem, not that you only helped. I had to come back to say that, but I couldn't see any way of changing my vote.
