in the same location as the port are other settings. you need to see that they match those required by your isp.

There is a way to remove all account settings. /users/your account folder name/preferencepanes/apple.mail.plist
or something similar.

as for fixing your mail issue, the port comes to mind. port 25 is being outlawed by a lo of isps and many are doing it without warning. Open mail prefs, go to accounts, in the first tab, open the smtp servers popup, select edit server list, select your smtp server from the list, click advanced, choose custom, replace the port with 587 and save your work all the way out.

I am using snow leopard. I have a problem with mail. It will receive my messages fine, but when I try to send them it says it can't send mail using my smtp server. Everything is configured properly. I've tried creating a new account and removing the old one several times and still no luck. Any help on this would be much apreciated!

Is there a way to remove all mail preferences and account settings?
