    Mail
    I still can't pick up my email in leopard via mail.

    I have two separate pop accounts and neither work.

    Can anyone recommend and alternative to mail that I could try? one thats free ideally?

    Or if anyone has any ideas as to why it isn't working. i would rather use mail really.

    thanks

    The two pop accounts ... are they gmail & hotmail? Or are you using accounts given to you by your ISP?

    They are accounts that got with my web site host.

    They are just standard pop accounts I think,

    mail.qwerty-design.co.uk

    with a user name and password.

    They always work fine on the PC.

    I wish I knew why they won't work this is really annoying me, mail looks a really good app too.

    Thanks

    Are you entering all the server and port info correctly? Do they use SSL? What error you get when trying to check email?

    What are you entering for Incoming & Outgoing Mail Server?

    This is working now, i went into the advanced section, ssl was selected with port 995, once i unchecked this the port went to 110 and then it worked.

    sorry to mess you about.
