Both mails gmail and my company s mail working perfectly Many thanks!!!!!!! Anyway, after fiddling for a thousand years, this is what worked for me on my new laptop (Yosemite). - switched Port to 25 - unchecked SSL on both incoming and outgoing Additional Product Support Information Start a Discussion in Apple Support Communities Ask other users about this article Wait...

Is there some command I should be inputing into the Terminal to wake it up or a sturdy whack up the side with a 2 by??? Click the Account Information tab. The outgoing password should be the third box down and is the same as the incoming password. Select "Use SSL: On", "Authentication: Password" and "Port: 587". Tap "Done".

and Darth, ... If your service providerisn't blocking SMTP traffic and you still can't send messages, contact iCloud Support for help. Ask the recipient to check their Junk mail folders or mailboxes. Too bad; you have just lost a long time LOYAL customer since 1989 - and that's no joke.
I am using Eastlink. If you still need help, try the steps below for your issue. Click the second tab along, “Outgoing server” and ensure “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication” is ticked. article for information on how to create a screenshot.
I have also changed the plist as suggested and the problem still occurs.

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 http://osxdaily.com/2014/10/28/fix-mail-smtp-sending-errors-os-x-mac/ Allowing less secure apps: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6010255?hl=en Reply J-Diddy says: January 26, 2015 at 10:53 am One more thing: Google has a good page on settings specific to your app: https://support.google.com/mail/troubleshooter/1668960?rd=1#ts=1665018,1665139 Reply RR If you have changed anything, try sending the message again. As I have not yet checked the XML plist for corruption, that could be a possible cause as well.
Was a massive case of voter fraud uncovered in Florida? check my blog Select “Use same settings as my incoming mail server”. “Require secure password authentication” should not be ticked. For those who have problems with Live Mail, now that smart phones are everywhere, know that your phone, if logged onto your accounts, may cause a disconnect. I can't get that checkbox to stick.
Leave the other entries at "no value specified" 9. Choose the "iCloud" Keychain in the left menubar 3. Hope that this bug is resolved in an update. this content Not the answer you're looking for?
Reply Amy says: June 24, 2015 at 2:09 pm Yahoo mail keeps being returned for “suspicious activity” only when I send it from my Apple desktop. Resolution was to generate a new app specific password for Mail on Mac and added it back to the Outgoing server settings. Reply Brian says: December 9, 2014 at 12:15 pm Many thanks!
I fixed it using a partial of Option 2 above which I think is quicker. i've tried port 25, port 587, tried using smtp.mac.com, mail.mac.com, mail.optonline.net (my ISP) tried with SSL and without, everything i could change i've changed.

Neither one of them worked for me sadly but thanks for trying. If you verify that all your account settings are correct, but you still can't send messages, try turning on SMTP authentication. This means when I try to send / reply an email from Exchange mail box, it defaults to Gmail as the sender. I have deleted false and true thing and now I am not being able to either send mails like before nor I can delete the existing mails incoming from gmail..please suggest
Stuff like System Prefs, Terminal… Un-flippin-believable. The maximum size varies by service provider. Solution: Verify that your account user name, password, and other settings are correct in Account preferences. I'm tired of arguing with my ISP Techs and tired countless pages of useless info, wives tails and checking out chicken end-trails.
Since installing Yosemite, all my Gandi.net mail accounts sporadically fail to send or receive (Gmail, iCloud and others have been OK). in any way. thank you!! :) Reply eborus says: November 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm I couldn't send from any of my email accounts in Yosemite after Mail kept crashing, this article pointed to Reply Marc says: December 23, 2014 at 8:25 pm Apple has become one helluva f'd up company.
