apple mail but isp is register.com
tried restarting. mail freezes with spinning logo
been having problem for last few days on all my 3 mac devices in sending email (but receiving was OK on all devices and still is on other 2) i think i may have made some changes to account settings on this mac that caused the freeze?
Christine, First we can reset the Preferences of Mail and see if that works or not. So force quit Mail then, on finder, Hold down Option key on your Keyboard, click on Go menu and select Library. This will take you to the Library folder of your User Account. Open Preferences folder. Then trash com.apple.mail.xxxxx.plist (xxxxx = various numbers), com.apple.mail.xxxxx.plist.lockfilecom.apple.mail.plistcom.apple.mail.plist.lockfile Let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting.Best Regards,Ashik
Hi Ashik . That did work thanks but I still can't send emails. Is that a different problem?
IMAP accounts ok but SMTP could not connect to server
Nearly there! message now sends and appears in inbox of other 2 devices but not this mac although i can see it in sent box?
Let me know how it goes...
i can't find incoming port setting?
ps- i will give you a bonus as i realise i'm asking lots of questions!
yes but i have set that to 5125 and if i change it to 110 i can;t see any emails in inbox
993 with ssl on and 143 with ssl off
have now got both macs set to 993 ssl on and working!!!
only iphone still unable to send email
Glad to hear that :) Make the same changes on your iPhone too. Goto Settings and tap Mail, Contacts, Calenders. Tap your Mail account and tap Account (with your email). Tap SMTP and tap the server name and change the server and port. That should work. Let me know how it goes.
changed phone to 993 ssl on but still not sending
when i do that (i.e. 993 ssl on) it says SMTP server not responding. check network connection and that you entered correct information in outgoing server field
