Remove extra SMTP servers from Mail.app
Authored by: cornsyrupkills on Jan 22, '04 09:59:43PM

In Panther all you have to do is go to the account info and click on "Server Settings" button where you will find a popup menu which includes "Edit Info..."

If you have a version of Mail.app prior to Panther then you can edit the preference file manually in a text editor.

- Make sure to quit Mail.app before you begin.
- Dig in your Home > Library > Preferences and open the file "com.apple.mail.plist" (If you're paranoid you should make a backup copy of this file just in case).
- Open the pref file in TextEdit (or your favorite editor), do a search for your server and delete the entire string including the surrounding tags
- Save and Close the file.
- Launch Mail.app and enjoy!a

(if Mail.app is open when you try to edit the prefs the app will overwrite your changes.)
