Re: Mac receiving email but sending rejected p[w not accepted

Are you using Mac Mail or only the webmail?  If you are using Mail, then you need to change the password for the outgoing smtp server-----------------

 

Open Mail.app.

Go to Mail > Preferences

 

Click Accounts > Account Information

Under Account Information look for Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP).

 

Click on the drop down arrow and select Edit Server List...

Select the existing SMTP server for your domain.

 

 

Click Advanced

From the Authentication drop down, select Password

Fill in your Username (e.g. john@example.com) and Password

 

Click the Test Account Settings button to set the new settings.

Click OK and then close the preferences window.

Click Next then Finish.

Save the changes, and try sending mail again
