    Hi im using yahoo.co.uk account for my email, since it got POP3 for free, I also uses destiny cable for my internet connection. and i was able to get my email using Mail. but i'm having problem in sending email from my Mail. I'm sure i set up the smtp correctly. but if not how do u set it up? I also uses destiny cable for my internet connection.

    probably your mail inbox (destiny) is full... try accessing it through the webmail then erase a few messages then go to MAIL:

    click Mail, then go to preference
    click Accounts
    then go to Advanced
    be sure to check the ()remove copy from server....
    this will prevent your inbox to be full...

    hmm, teka i think this setup is for problems retrieving emails,, pero try mo na din :D

    Have you set Mail to use Yahoo's authenticated SMTP server? If not, go to Mail -> Preferences -> Accounts. Click on the Account Information tab then Server Settings...

    Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk
    Server port: 25
    Authentication: Password
    User Name: (your Yahoo! user name)
    Password: (your Yahoo! password)

    Let me get this straight. You can DOWNLOAD yahoo.co.uk mail, but you can't SEND, right?

    Very simple. Just use this smtp address for your outgoing mail:
    smtp.mydestiny.net

    I used to be on Destiny and you need to use their SMTP to send out mail, no matter what account (Destiny, Yahoo, .Mac, etc.) No other server will go through.

    I have a Yahoo.co.uk address myself and have not had any problems using it with Mail.app.

    Try logging in gmail first, there's a setting there that it will only download emails from the time you activate the POP.

    Have you tried shift-command-H (Mail -> View -> Message -> Long Headers)?

    Sorry I wasn't clear. I want to hide it completely and just print the body of the mail. No From, Date, To, and Subject lines. Is this possible?

    I'm printing an e-ticket (with a little graphics) and it's using up two pages because of the header.

    You need to find out the incoming and outgoing mail server which usually starts with either pop. or mail. and smtp. HTH
