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?
