Well, here is the short story...

When using mail along with my verizon or .mac mail accounts all is well at home. Then when I travel receiving emails goes fine however sending them does not work at all.

Anyone ever experience this and find a fix?

I have tried changing the port settings but it has not helped at all. I simply do not like using webmail and want to be able to send from my laptop using the mail.app.

Should I migrate to the entourage software? Does it work better when not on your home network?
