Ask your Internet Service provider for the proper settings on your outgoing mail account. You enter these through your Mail application. You will need your outgoing mail server address. Their tech support will be able to set these up. My Verizon tech support actually logged into my computer and set up all the mail.

If you use email provider like Gmail or Yahoo first go directly to gmail or yahoo site using Safari and sign into your email that way if it works and no problem with your password logout and close Safari
Then go to Mail app on your mac (Stamp Icon)delete the mail account (don't worry you will not lose your emails) Then start over by setting up your email account all over again this should do the trick.

SOURCE: cant send e-mail with entourage

Common cause for it is bad entourage settings.

Which error message do you get when sending mail fails?

SOURCE: send button

You can try one of a few things.  First look at your mail your are composing. Notice the line that says from: it should be followed by your email addres.... Across from it should be the outgoing mailserver the account will be using. If that box is blank, clik on it and select a mail server.  Also, make sure the "only use this mail server" box is not checked. Once you uncheck, it should allow you to choose one of the available mail servers you already have listed. 
If you don't have any out going mail servers listed, then choose the "edit mail server list" option (in that same pull down menu).  Based upon you mail again setting, you will then enter the out going mail server.  An example would be.  (mail.charter.net.... or smtp.charter.net)  Check with you email service provider to determine what that setting should be.
Hope this helps! Let me know.

SOURCE: Enter password for account window. but it does not

Sounds like your ISP is rejecting the password stored in mail. I used to get this a lot in windows with outlook express. The best solution I used to find was to remove all the mail settings and start from scratch setting them up again.

SOURCE: I have been hacked. I have lost my yahoo

Only Yahoo can help you. If you can't follow their instructions all you can do is to set up a new account and send everybody a message that the old account is compromised and it should be blocked from now on.
This has happened because your password has been a weak one (you haven't been hacked - they guessed it easily), don't repeat that mistake. And posting your personal data here on in any other public place is the most dumb thing possible. DON'T DO IT AGAIN ! You could lose a lot more than an email account, starting with your money and your house.

Have gmailaccountnot receiving mail sent to me


1) Do the parties have your correct email address. Test at least one of the parties by requesting they use the link in your email to reply to you rather than their contact list in one single email when you know they are online. If you get it from them and not the other parties, then just perhaps the others are sending to an old email address.

2) Have you searched all of your mail boxes? Sometimes a rule has been applied that filters your incoming mail and sends it to an unexpected mail box in rather than your primary mail box.

3) Have you checked your spam box. Most of us have had some mail sent to spam that was not.

4) Consider changing your password to your email.

5) Is no email coming your way or just mail from a particular party? Compose a letter to yourself and email it to your own email address. After all, no mistaking that address!

6) Have you installed any new security software? And, just maybe your own antiviral is blocking something malicious that has attached itself to an email sent your way.

7) Sometimes email gets stuck in a server somewhere on its way to you. For instance, if someone tries to send you an email with an attachment that is larger than what the email server allows, it gets stuck in their outbox and you don't get it. There may be NOTHING wrong on your end, in such a case.

Why doesn't it work correctly?


Also, make sure nothing is in your Outbox folder. If any emails are stuck in this folder, it will cause issues.

Why am i not receiving emails which i know have been sent nothing received since 11th february


Is your mailbox full? Are your senders getting messages that the mail could not be delivered because your mailbox is full? If so, you must delete some of your previously received or sent mail to make space for incoming mail.

If that doesn't do it, reply with more infornation. Who is your provider (Comcast, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.)? Do you use a mail client or a web browser to receive your mail? Windows, Mac, Android phone, iPhone, something else?

I receive emails on my mac and some I forward to friends,but their unable to open them youtube etc and ask I send again but when I try I cannot open either. Please Help


Hi Richard. Thers a good chance you have mail preferences setup to compose new emails in "plain text". And/Or, "Use the same message format as the original message", meaning if you reply to someone who sent you an email that is in Rich Text Format, then your reply will be in Rich Text Format but, if they send you an email in Plain Text Format, then your reply, and possibly any forwarding will be sent in Plain Text also.

For website addresses to be "clickable links" in mail, you need to ensure all emails you send, forward, or reply are in Rich Text Format.
go to Mail... Preferences... then select the Composing tab and ensure Message Format is set to "Rich Text".
Further below in the same tab you will see "Responding" and a tick box for Use the same message format as the original message (Respond using Rich or Plain Text).
If you always want to respond or forward in Rich Text only and every time, then deselect that option.
All links should work and be clickable from then onwards.

You can highlight a non working website link in the email body, right click, then select "Link" then "Add Link" to make it clickable but, you will receive a notification about converting this message to rich text format?"

Basically, the links will not be clickable if you are setup to compose new emails in Plain Text. Nor will any replies or forwards you send that are changing to Plain Text to match the format received by you from others.
Always end, reply and forward in Rich Text Format

Hope that helps.
Regards
Paul

Am unable to send outgoing/incoming yahoo.co.in mails from my samsung gts5253 mobile


you will need to check the WAP and Email setup settings with your service providers, you can also go the the Email setup wizard and enter the following settings.

Yahoo Mail offers standard POP3 access for receiving emails incoming through your Yahoo mailbox, by using your favorite email client software. To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings:
    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)

I am unable to send and receive emails.


Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures range from Update Adobe Flash Player and Java script to clear IE7 cache, cookies, and browsing history. Different things seem to work for different people. It's causing attachments to not show, 999 errors where it won't let you do a particular action and some people cannot send receive delete or move mail. It's not just Vista either it's happening to some of us on XP. If all else fails go back to classic mail via this link. http://us.mg1.mail.yahoo.com/dc/optout?s... click yes when asked do you want to opt out. Hope this helps.RICHARDM69

E MAILS FAIL TO GO


Dear Geoff, There can be multiple reasons for this. When you reply and error shows up it can be:

a) Your internet speed is slow and your email client has not been able to send your message.
b) Check the email address you're sending the email too. Recipient email address can be full.
c) Check your email settings to ensure that your outgoing and incoming mail servers are working.
d) If you are still facing problems maybe you can make new email address on relatively more user friendly websites like Yahoo, Hotmail or Expedia.com.

If thats helpful kindly press solved.
