: Mail.app has too many outgoing server options!

My Mail.app in Jaguar has been buggy. It has about 7 Outgoing Server options under my account in Preferences. Whenever I send mail it seems to pick between several of them at random. I have repeatedly picked which one I desire to use but it still insists on using one or another about 50% of the time. Can I delete these extra Outgoing Mail Servers?

The extras are older ones that I no longer use and one or two I think Mail.app invented on its own.

In Mail, if you go into your account preferences, open the outgoing mail server drop-down and select "Edit Server List". From here you can remove any un-needed outgoing mail servers.

In Jaguar, I don't know if that edit server list is available. If I remember correctly, there is an AppleScript floating around on the net (or it could even be buried in your Mac somewhere) that lets you delete those unwanted servers.
