Re: [amug] IMAP to POP in Apple Mail

I don't why exactly IMAP is better than POP. I don't know enough about the differences between POP and IMAP. 

Are you saying that one cannot change an email address from IMAP to POP in Apple Mail, t hat it has to be with the ISP (AT&T)?

I have 8 email addresses. For some reason, only one of them is an IMAP account. I have no idea why it is an IMAP account. I did  not ask for it to be an IMAP account. Did AT&T make this an IMAP account automatically? If so, then that means somehow I would have to change it with AT&T.

Beyond all this, yet related, is that the one IMAP address I have won't send emails out. I've tried used the outgoing SMTP server AT&T tech support told me to use, and it doesn't work. I've tried 2 other servers. They don't work. I've tried different ports (995 and 993). I've included password authentication. Checked and unchecked SSL.

Thoughts?

Robin

Re: [amug] IMAP to POP in Apple Mail WHY would you want to?

Probably best to delete and enter a new account. I don’t know of many that will allow you to do it, let alone have Mail allow it. Google Gmail, maybe?
Paid-for Yahoo?
