  • Snow Leopard Email help

    Hokai so.

    I jave my new mac with Snow Leopard. I have setup my iinet email in the Mail app and am able to DL my iinet email howefver it will not let me send. I have gone thru the settings on iinet but tey only show for 10.5 not 10.6 and the setup is one or two screens different. Anyone else have this probl;em before with POP email ? I have tried wth and wthout outgoing SSL ... with and wthout pwd auth .. nothing seems to work

        what email client are you using? I use Thunderbird and am with iinet with my macs, so I hope this helps.

        On setting for smtp server you must have username and password passed back as iinet mail server requires authentication

          What settings are you using?
          POP3 for incoming, SMTP for outgoing?

              Just upgraded to SL with no change to mail.

              SMTP setting should be as simple as mail.iinet.net.au with no authentication. This will ONLY work, though, when you're connected to the net via an iinet service. So if you're using that computer elsewhere (eg at work etc) then it won't work.

                Pretty sure you need smtp server address as mail.m.iinet.net.au and put your username and password in as it needs it to send mail.

                    Showing your age there mate

                    as Desmo said, just plain mail.iinet.net.au will work for outgoing now

                      yea tried all that. currently trying to use it at home for the moment but no dice. Just using the standard mail app that comes with it. I shall have a fiddle and see how I go ... if worst comes to worst I'll just go through the webmail client on the webpage instead. either or Thanks for all the advice tho
