It seems just a bit odd that Apple, with all its wealth and technological genius, cannot make a mail app that can consistently send outgoing mail using Apple's own (me.com
) mail service. If that statement seems too bizarre to be real, just Google something like "apple mail can't send" and see what comes up.
Please don't respond to this with suggestions on how to fix it, since the apple tech support forums are full of folk wisdom on this topic, and none of it seems to work.
On my machine, Mail will happily send outgoing email on other services such as well.com
and google mail. The only system it doesn't work with is Apple's own.
Until recently this only happened when I was away from home, and so I'd use webmail on me.com
as a workaround. But now it seems to be perma-broken, so I'm reduced to using webmail all the time for me.com/mac.com
