Got a mobile me account but can't send mail
Mail on my Mac won't send.

I just signed up for a mobile me account. I'm on the trial version because I wanted to try it before spending $100 on it. I setup the account on my mac and neither my ical or mail will sync correctly. The calendar never updates and whenever I try to send a message with Mail I get: "the message could not be delivered..." and "Sending the message content to the server failed." In iCal there is no error and nothing ever happens.

There's no problem with Entourage sending mail through port 25, but Mail won't connect. In my system settings the .mac account is setup to sync automatically and the boxes for mail and calendar are checked. Any thoughts?

Mail 2.1.3
OS X 10.4.11
iCal 2.0.5

Mike, are you behind a firewall? I've heard that could cause problems.
