How to send .Mac mail when SMTP is blocked

Um, saving as a draft only works if your .Mac email account is set up as IMAP. (Mine is set as POP.) Does IMAP also use SMTP to send?

How to send .Mac mail when SMTP is blocked

It does for me. I use .Mac+Mail.app via IMAP, and SMTP for sending. I used to just 'send mail' from .Mac (write the whole darn thing...) but this tip looks cool. As for changing the port, that sounds even cooler!

Depends on what you mean. IMAP and POP are both network protocols for accessing stored mail from your mailserver. They have nothing to do with routing(sending) mail; that's what SMTP does. So regardless of whether you're using IMAP or POP, you still have to have an SMTP server defined to send any e-mail.

Now in Tiger's Mail.app; if you specify an account type of .Mac you get an IMAP/SMTP connection.
