Hi All,
I recently decided that I want to use the Mail program vice Hotmail, but I've been having problems getting it to work. I have a 12" G4 Powerbook with Tiger 10.4.11 using Mail version 2.1.
I can open the program, but it keeps asking for my password. I enter it, and it tells me that it's not right. I know it's a good password. I went so far as to make a new account and enter in the password again.
If I just open up a new email and try to send it to my hotmail, it says:
The server "smtp.mac.com" cannot be contacted on port 25.
I'm getting tired already of trying to figure this out, so if any of you have any ideas that might help, please let me know.
Thanks a lot for anything.
Mike

Figured it out. I just got ahold of my isp and they walked me though **** to get it fixed.
It's working great now though!
Thanks.
