Apple Mail - Send does nothing


#1

Hi,

My email works fine in Eudora on Mac OS 10.4.6. However I cannot send email in Apple Mail 2.0.7. Clicking the Send button in the message window does nothing. Nothing happens. Checking mail is fine. I have this problem with a non-DreamHost email account as well.

I’ve set up Mail as per the DH instructions at http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Mac_OS_X_Mail. I’ve tried sending mail with and without SSL. I’ve changed the port numbers, using 25, 587, and 465 all to no avail.

A separate problem I have concerns Drafts. Saving mail with Save As Draft works fine. But when I reopen the Draft, and save it again, Mail crashes and I have to reopen it using the Crash dialog box.

Little help? Thanks.

i have dreamhost accounts set up on at least 10 different macs all using Mail and no problems and since you said you are also having problems with a non dreamhost email account then i would say it is a Mail issue. you need to go to http://discussions.apple.com for Apple support because i doubt you will find it here.

For the crashing, are you using POP or IMAP?

Just FYI, I use Mail.app with SSL turned on, using IMAP and have no problems, other than occasionally a sent message also stays in the Drafts folder.

I am checking Apple Discussions, thanks.

The current situation is this: Choosing Connection Doctor from the Windows menu shows every connection and login successful. But the Send button still does not work. It’s very strange, because I can send Mail using an AppleScript (iCalMail - a email scheduler), but not manually.
