Provider is @aol.com
Checked the Connection Doctor and there are only green dots, stating that the connection is fine.
One says: "smtp.aol.com Connection to server succeeeded, no login required"
But when I try to send mail the error message says: "Cannot send message using the server smtp.aol.com. Server response is: Sender address rejected; not logged in"
So, that sounds like two conflicting messages. I'm using the same info on my other mac and it's working there (maul is sending).
I'm just now deleting a lot of old messages, maybe that would help? Although I don't really think so.
Is it POP or IMAP?
Which ports are you using?
Is the other Mac a later OSX that has buoilt in choices for AOL?
It's IMAP, port 143. The other Mac is an Intel Desktop 2008.
The older Mac belongs to my mother. She was still using the old AOL software for writing and sending E-mails and had some issues with it, but otherwise liked it. I thought it didn't even exist anymore, but then I found the software online, downloaded it and re-installed, so it seems to be working fine now and she probably won't need the other mail.
I could try the advice in the article, but I just don't want to change anything and create a problem with the AOL software. So, I guess I'll leave it like that for now and bookmark the article in case I need it later.
Thanks for your help!
