Apple Mail problem
Posted by: macphanatic

Accidentally put the wrong email address in an existing account. Now Apple Mail won't send or receive email on that account (after fixing the email address).

I'm able to access and send/receive email via Webmail and from another computer without issue. Subject Mac is running 10.5.6. Any ideas on how to fix this screw-up?

Not clear exactly where you put the wrong email address - in an email you were sending out on in an account set up ?

Do you have more than one account in Apple Mail ?

It seems you should be able to go to Mails preferences and click the Account Tab and edit the info there.

Some additional info would help.

Just add a new account with the correct email---and then delete the account that doesn't work.

The email address I changed was in the Preferences>Accounts area. I wound up re-entering all of the account info, saving and quitting mail. Upon restarting Mail, all was well. Never figured out what the issue was though.
