Pop3=110
Smtp=25

IMAP=143 but it's rarely used by ISP's.

SMTP (send mail) is on 25
IMAP (less used way to retrieve mail) I can not remember

Your outgoing is the SMTP. Port 25. Unless your ISP is non standard like Gmail. What ISP are you using?

Ok, let me check the .mac and see what they are using. I thought they were standard but never really looked.

Seems like they are using default settings so the ports I gave you should work.

Is your problem sending out email or receving new mail or both?

Do you have your account settings in Mail set correctly?

Did you change just the Outgoing mail port or the port under advanced settings for pop?

Just checked, They are using IMAP for their Incoming Mail according to their page and mail when I set up a .mac account. So the Incoming is 143 and the outgoing is 25.

Well with .mac they say it's port 25 for Outgoing (SMTP).

"The member name and password you use for SMTP authentication must match the member name and password in the User Name and Password fields."

maybe if i tell you the error you guys might be able to help me better...this is exactly message i get when i try and send an e-mail

The connection to the server “smtp.mac.com” on port 25 timed out.

You can try to send using a different server. All messages will use this server until you quit or change your network settings.

none of the network settings at home have changed only at school so i can't figure out why this is not working
