Question Cannot Send MAIL...

My MAIL (V 3.6) doesn't have an Active SEND button now.
Cannot Send. Cannot Receive.
Do you know Why ? And, How to fix ?

If you've lost all of the buttons (Send, Get Mail, etc.) then it's something I've seen a thousand times... click the light grey "lozenge" (rounded rectangle? Little oval?) at the top-right of the window. Your buttons will re-appear.



This works in many programs, including the Finder.

Re: Cannot Send MAIL....

I was happy for 10 whole seconds as got my "Send" button back per you!, M!!
Then, tried sending msg to myself....No go.

Cannot show screenshots here I think, so here's some of info shown:
( Guess it all boils down to getting my correct STMP info from ATT (?)
_________

(below are quotes)

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - (indicated "None")
Use only this server - (box was checked)

The server error encountered was: The server “POP3” cannot be contacted on port 995.

The connection to the server “smtp.att.yahoo.com” on port 995 timed out.

Cannot send message using the server smtp.att.yahoo.com
Select a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your Outbox until it can be delivered.... I tried. Maybe port # wrong. Guess I have to call AT&T for info ??

Your mail server settings are not set up correctly - you'll need to contact your host(s) for the details, we don't have your info here.

Yes indeedy. If you use the "quick reply" button, you don't see the option. But at the bottom of the window is a button that says "Go Advanced". In the Advanced post mode, there is a button for "Manage Attachments". Easy-peasy.

This thread would probably be better in the "Mac & iPod Help & Troubleshooting" forum as opposed to the Mac Masters area ...
