    Question about iPhoto
    My mom was trying to send me a picture from iPhoto, but when she does it pops up with an error saying "The email server didn't recognize your email/password combination". Now I know the pw/name is all proper so I'm not sure why it's doing this. I dont have alot of personal experience with iPhoto so I thought I'd ask the pros over here on the boards Thanks for any assistance you can offer. Oh ... she tends to use aol.com instead of the Mac Mail program sometimes, could that be confusing it? I actually have Mail running now on her iMac now and its still saying the same error.

    What version of iPhoto is she using? If it is the newest version i'm pretty sure there was a bit of a bug in the software when it came to emailing photos to someone. However there was an update released just a few days ago to resolve this issue. (Through Software Update in the top menu).

    Specs:
    MBP 17"(2.8 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB mem), 21.5" Imac, 15" MBP (2.4 ghz) all running ML
    I had the same problem. I could send email's through iPhoto with my gmail account but not me.com. I went in to iPhoto preferences and under accounts re-entered my password for the me.com account and it works now. Might be worth giving it a try.
