Not to mention that some people may not even realize that you are basically telling them to send mail in an insecure way, like the guy above who now happily sends Reply Georgiana says: November 23, 2014 at 8:45 am The problem I am having with Mac Mail 8 is that the outgoing server port keeps defaulting to an unusable port number. Most of the time you cannot send messages from one account provider using another account provider's service.

Resolution was to generate a new app specific password for Mail on Mac and added it back to the Outgoing server settings. https://support.google.com/mail/answer/7126229?hl=en The only way to quit Mail is to Force Quit…this cannot be the right way to treat a machine! Your #2 work around fixed the issue…. I have also changed the plist as suggested and the problem still occurs.
Receive works fine, just can't send. check my blog Hope un UPDATE is coming to fix all this… Thanks for your effort it was worth the try. All my settings seemed correct.

Reply Peter says: May 10, 2015 at 3:57 pm These are rather detailed instructions for what worked for me. If you use multiple email clients or devices for the same Gmail account, try closing or signing out of some. Mine was already in True and it has exactly the same problems… Apple are horrible to ignore this and not send any fixes. United States Copyright © Apple Inc.
Open the app "Keychain Access" 2. In there, delete the Gmail account from there. So I eliminated the Yahoo account on Mail - I had to go through internet accounts to do this. have a peek at these guys I selected this box and the problem disappeared.
Had a weird problem where it was asking for an SMTP password for an account that was long since completely deleted from Mail. I changed them all (I honestly didn't have a clue what I was doing) and then tried Mail again. article for information on how to create a screenshot. Click on your gmail account then under "outgoing server" check what server is chosen by default then click "edit smtp server list" at bottom.

Strange, but I'm happy. I have the exact symptoms mentioned above in sending email with Yosemite OSX. #1 didn't fix the issue and #2 didn't seem to, either. I have been having the same issue for 6 months and was unable to fix it despite trying all of things that I had read. Reply Paul says: October 28, 2014 at 7:19 pm Well that sure seems silly, thanks!
Works fine now.Thanks! Reply amigo says: April 27, 2015 at 2:08 pm Since I updated to Yosemite 10.10.13 I can receive email thru the mail app, but CANT send mail. I couldn't restore a single Mavericks until I deleted Yosemite backups even though I didn't want to restore those. I am not exactly sure where, but somewhere in the mail app (probably in the preferences) there is a setting to change which outgoing mailbox it uses.
I still am able to receive messages but cannot send messages in Mac Mail. Reply James Flockton says: October 29, 2014 at 8:56 am I liked that one also!
