    I have been using Mail app to send emails for over a year now and suddenly it cannot send mail. It still gets new mail. Any suggestions?

    what account are you using it for? MobileMe (formerly .Mac), gmail?

    if any of the above, sometimes the Outgoing SMTP Mail Server may be full, in which case try again in a few minutes.

    if you've been using your ISP's outgoing server mail address, that might be the cause, in which case you'll need to contact them.

    HTH.

    I am using Gmail so everything seems clear now. I just felt alarmed after for two straight weeks my mail app cannot send mails. Will check again later to see if it works now. I'll let you hear if its good again. Thanks dude.:D

    Ok I found out the problem. It was the server port. I must have accidentally changed it when I helped my friend configure his mail app to Gmail. Thanks dude. :D
