How to send .Mac mail when SMTP is blocked
Authored by: stewarsh on Jan 18, '06 11:33:51AM

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; if you specify an account type of .Mac you get an IMAP/SMTP connection.
