Hi and thanks in advance for your time.

I have read a million threads with similar problems and still have not found a definative answer!

I have a mbp and have mail set up with a gmail account and a work account. The gmail always works fine however the work account will receive and send emails fine when I am at work but will only receive when I am at home.

Any experts on this subject?

Is that particular GMail account setup as POP 3 or iMap? Check out this article and see if it helps you to understand why you can not send while at home.

With nothing more to go on than "work account" I doubt if anyone is going to be able to give you any idea about what the problem could be. The solution is in the details.

Talk to your employer's computer people.

It's possible that they've deliberately set it up so that it can only be used from within the company.
