    Mail application problems
    I've tried what I know could be wrong. My smtp is smpt.google.com.

    My outgoing adress is plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com

    "Activare this account" is ticked it.

    Account type: POP

    No TLS Certificate

    Port: 995

    Please help me!

    Welcome to the Mac Forums.

    What is it that you're trying to do? It appears you have two outgoing mail addresses (gmail and yahoo). Which mail service provider are you using?

    THank you!

    I'm trying to use gmail.

    Edit: I'm still getting problems when I use smpt.google.com. I get a box that says "User adress xxx@gmail.com is not approved by smtp.google.com"
    "Use another outgoing e-mail server"

    Hello, you really need to get three pieces of information correct (especially regarding spelling which from your responses, letters have been reversed) - BUT, make sure: 1) your email address for Gmail is correct; 2) that your incoming POP (or IMAP) address is correct; and 3) that your outgoing SMTP is correct (in your OP you typed 'My smtp is smpt.google.com - see the spelling in bold). Please post back after checking and if all is spelled correctly, then further suggestions can be given. Dave

    Your addressing is wrong. Incoming gmail should read: pop.gmail.com
    sending or outgoing should read: smtp.gmail.com

    Also, it's a good idea to access your account on the gmail server and change your password. However, don't forget to also change it in the Mail program.

    You make the proper entries in your Mail program by opening Preferences, Accounts, Account Information. Don't forget to save the changes.

    Lets take it one step at a time, and maybe we can solve this problem ...

    You need to correct erroneous entry for your incoming mail server, as pointed by chscag above:



    1. Select smtp part of the address and type pop

    You have no outgoing mail server selected, so you need to rectify that:

    2. Click on the arrows, as shown in above picture, you'll be presented with this (you won't have as many servers, if any, so don't worry):



    1. Make note which, if any, server is ticked, and
    2. Click on Edit SMTP Server List

    You will see this (again, ignore the fact that I have quite a few entries there, you might not have any):



    If your correct server smtp.gmail.com is selected (point 1), then

    2. Set the port and authentication, as advised by Google (I'm afraid I don't use it, so wouldn't know)

    If you don't have your smtp server listed, then do this:



    1. Click on + to add a server
    2. Either enter it where it says 'Double-click to enter', or
    3. Enter the name as shown in server name field

    Now you can go back to previous image and set the port and SSL, if any.

    Once you're back to account setting screen (your own screenshot at the top), don't forget to:

    3. Tick the box to only use this smtp server with your gmail account.

    I've omitted some obvious steps, like clicking OK to confirm changes made, etc ...

    THanks a bunch for your time and effort, but it still doesnt work. Seems I get incoming mail (i THINK) but outgoing is still no-go. One problem I have is that I cant get Google POP, instead I get Google IMAP, and I don't know how to chnge it.

    Edit: Yes, I can receive incoming mail, but sending mail still doesn't wotk. It has to do something with Google IMAP, instead of POP, but I can't change IMAP to POP...

    Is there any reason why you don't want to use Mail pre-set routine for setting up Google mail account?
    I just went through this and it takes 30 seconds and requires you to type in your email and password - can't be any simpler than that, really:










    May I suggest you use this option, as manual setup is quite clearly not working for you. For what it worth, the gmail smtp server settings (from the automated setup) are exactly as I listed in the previous post...

    Question to members, who use Google - is there even an option to have POP3, rather than IMAP?
    I just setup a test account and do not see any mention of pop ... Not that I was looking hard

    ROfl, I acutally had no idea you could do that. But that first screenshot, I don't get it when I click the + (plus) button.

    Sending mail has nothing to do with delivery protocol - i.e. POP3 or IMAP.
    It has, however everything to do with SMTP.

    I suggest you use the automated gmail setup, and see if you can post through that: if yes, than you'd need to copy smtp settings exactly as they are in the working account (or just use what works); and if not, than there's a problem with, most likely, relaying denial by your ISP/network/system manager, etc. This can be overcome by changing security protocols and opening alternative ports to get out, but it is, perhaps, a bit too involved ...

    Ah, what OS X version are you running?

    If you can definitely receive mail through pop.gmail.com, than all you need, is to configure your smtp:

    Go to you account and click on double-arrow for smtp server, as explained above, here's what you need to put in:
