Without any changes being made, my Mac Mail is not working.
Does anyone have any advice?
The error message is;
There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Verify the settings for account “name” or try again.
The server returned the error: The connection to the server “imap.mail.yahoo.com” on port 993 timed out.
I am having the same issue on a pc. cannot connect to server 0x800ccc0e. (via imap port 993)
This has been going on for a couple of weeks now. There is nothing wrong with my settings which have been working for months.
There's something rather odd, as the account details both on the Mac and my iphone are unchanged, yet the Mac can't retrieve emails, but the iphone can.
It would appear that Mail for OS X and bt mail are unable to talk!
I don't think it's your mac. I have a pc and an iphone.
The iphone works fine but outlook (imap) on my pc stopped working for no reason.
if i disconnect my pc from my bt hub and connect through my iphone (teather), i can get mail in outlook.
Having similar issue with email here... have to pay £15 to get the issue resolved... not bad for having BT infinity for less than a week as a brand new customer.
I have been having the same problem with my BT/Yahoo IMAP outgoing mail server for the last few days and have found this solutions that seems to be working - well for now at least. I am running an iMac OS X 10.8.3
On your Mail select Preferences and go into Accounts. For each yahoo mail account - I have three - on Account Information in the Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) use the drop down menu to Eit SMTP Server List.
For each account enter in Server Name: apple.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
