    Unable to send email with Outlook Express. Can send and receive using the comcast program, but I prefer Outlook.

    I want to blame it on my Motorola SBG900.

    Firstly are you using the email client(macmail/outlook) to send and receive the emails? If yes than you need to configure the email account settings. Secondly if you are the webmail(wapda) directly there shouldnot be any such issues unless you have a anitivirus/firewall on your computer which has a email security enabled. however if you provide the above info, we can look around for the solution on the same.

Why does my new iMac not recognize my gmail account?

John you may need to go into your "settings" on your iMac and configure your gmail account there.

look for the Settings icon on your workspace
click and look for Mail
Open mail and you should see Accounts and further down a choice to "add account"
Then choose which mail application you want to use, Google mail, yahoo, etc.
open google or gmail and type in your info.
These settings should get you started to use your gmail.

Give it a try.

Why can't I open email on my iMac but can open it with my Windows laptop?

Hi Michael
Email on your iMac is accessed through Apple Mail application.
OR... Using a Browser to access the Email Server.
Try Opening
MAIL / Preferences / Accounts / Account Information.

There may be incorrect info in here.
Best to write the settings down on paper OR
CMD SHIFT 4 This takes a snapshot of a "cursor selected area" and saves it to the desktop. (Cmd Sh 3 does whole screen)
Check both Incoming & Outgoing Settings
If necessary (e.g. corrupt settings) you can Delete the email account & start clean
Add a New Account. A new Account will pre test the connection and put tick marks ? to indicate a good connection.
You can get the correct settings from your Win Laptop
Good Luck

When i send an email, people receive from a different email

Not so weird.
Imagine you are using Microsoft Outlook on one computer. To use Outlook to send and receive e-mail you must give it an E-mail address. Image that you and your wife use a single user account on the computer. For the computer there is only one user. Then you configure Outlook by creating an account (you must supply your e-mail address.) Someday or other your wife wants to use Outlook to receive and send E-mail. She must add a second account to Outlook.
I have no idea what you do not to read each other's email but when you want to send an E-mail Outlook has too use one of the two accounts (the outgoing mail server of one of the two addresses) to send the E-mail. Apparently your wife's account is the default one and all outgoing messages go through it. Before you press the send button, open the account list and select the one to use for sending.

On the following screen capture see the arrowhead. Open that menu. You will see all the accounts managed by Outlook listed there. One of them is marked as the default one.
You may not be using Outlook but that should not matter, Your E-mail client may behave similarly.

I can recieve email but I cant send any email out

If you can successfully receive e?mail messages, but can't send messages, then Windows Mail is having problems connecting to the outgoing e?mail server that's used to send messages. These are likely possibilities:
  • If you've never been able to send e?mail successfully using Windows Mail, your e?mail account is probably not set up properly. First, follow the steps to verify your e?mail account information in the "I can't receive e?mail" section of this help topic. If you verify that your e?mail account information is entered properly, you might need to change your authentication settings so that when sending mail, you sign in using your e?mail user name and password. Check with your e?mail provider to see if it requires authentication for sending e?mail.
    To use authentication when sending e?mail
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    5. If the account information that you use to send e?mail is not the same information that you use to receive messages, click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password that you use to send e?mail.
  • Many Internet service providers (ISPs) require you to be directly connected to their network to use their outgoing e?mail servers. If you're using a mobile PC and connect to the Internet using a different ISP (such as when using a wireless connection in a hotel), you might be able to receive, but not send, e?mail. Some ISPs will allow you to send e?mail when connected to a different provider if you use authentication when sending. Follow the previous steps to use authentication when sending e?mail. If your ISP doesn't allow this, you'll need to find out the name of the outgoing mail server for the ISP you're currently using, and then change the settings in Windows Mail to use it.
    To change the outgoing mail server settings
    1. Open Windows Mail by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Mail.
    2. Click the Tools menu, and then click Accounts.
    3. Under Mail, click your e?mail account, and then click Properties.
    4. Click the Servers tab, and then enter the new mail server in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) box.
    5. If the new outgoing mail server requires authentication, under Outgoing Mail Server, select the My server requires authentication check box.
    6. Click Settings, click Log on using, and then enter the user name and password for the outgoing mail server.
