Customer Question
On my MacBook Pro...

On my MacBook Pro, I am only having Mail come in but it will not go out. There has been a black triangle with ! and saying login failed up in the right hand corner of the mail window.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a PRAM reset on your MacBook Pro (rebooting and holding down Command, Option, P, and R)? Or rebooting in Recovery Mode (holding down Command and R)?

To be clear - does rebooting mean restarting or turning to power button off and then on?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I am having major issue with iCloud - all my docs got over to that Drive and I do not know how to retrieve them. I want them back on my desktop.

Hello,
I am the person that will be helping you today.

I must ask a question or two before we begin. Before we begin, please, understand that responding to my questions does not cost more. Also, me responding does not cost more.

Who is your e-mail provider? Please, do not enter your full email address. If you do that, it will be blocked. For that reason, please tell me what comes after the @ sign.

Thank you,
Jason

P.S. If you do not know the answers to any of my questions or are confused about something, please let me know by replying on this page.

Thank you for the update. May I connect with you remotely to troubleshoot the issue directly? When the remote session begins, we will be able to communicate back and forth via a chat window that will appear on your computer screen.

I saw your post about rebooting before you asked about my email provider. I asked you to clarify rebooting for me. You did not answer that. No post after the one about my email provider.

Again where are you?
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 3 months ago

I am here. It may take a minute or so for the message to appear for me.

Please just go ahead without remote assistance.
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 3 months ago

Oh okay. As far as your outgoing mail settings go, what do you have entered for the outgoing server?

much has been done for me. I do not know where to find this.
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 3 months ago

In the mail app, in the top menu bar, click Mail > Preferences.

- In the account window, double click your email account.

You can find the information on that window.

Under Server Settings, Outgoing Mail Account, it has Google (Offline)
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay. Please double click "Google". What is shown now?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I can not double click Google by itself, only combined with Offline. A window opens that gives other options - "None", "iCloud (offline)", Edit SMTP Server list. the Google option remains with that list.
Mac Support Specialist: Jason Jones, Mac Technician replied 3 months ago

I have run out of ideas.

For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.

When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.

Thank you for your patience.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
