    Mail
    hi.

    all of a sudden when trying to send mail, a box keeps popping up saying:

    The SMTP server “smtp.mac.com” rejected the password for user “samjones23”

    Please re-enter your password, or cancel.

    What is this? My mail was working fine earlier.

    Thanks

    Just give it some time - if you have made no changes related to your mail and/or network settings since it worked a couple hours ago - the issue is probably on their end.

    something to do with mobile me?

    they are asking for new card details. I wasnt aware that it was a yearly subscription for me mac.com email.

    im entering new card details but they are giving me a me.com email instead.

    will my mail work if i decide to not subscribe?

    .mac mail or .me as it's called now, is a part of their mobileme service.
    No, it will not work if you are not a subscriber.

    I do not know the ramifications pertaining to your existing e-mail addresses if you allow the service to expire.
