Outgoing Mail Server for Blueyonder problems on Mac

Hi there 

 

I am having some problems sending mail on my Macbook. I am using the Mail app and everything else is working fine (recieving mail etc.) but there is an occurring problem of me not being able to send mail for a long period of time. I get the error message 'error 54: Connection reset by peer'. 

 

I've tried editing the settings on my outgoing mail server to more accurate ones given on the virgin site and now when I look at the list of servers it says 'Blueyonder (Offline)'

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Cheers

Having exactly the same problem - have done all the same things - getting the same result so looks like a Virgin problem I'm afraid....

We're having this problem too and it has just happened after we were without the internet(again) for several days about a week ago. Abslotuely nothing we have done or changed. Very,very frustrating.

I've also been having issues with my blueyonder outgoing mail. Every time I send mail it gets stuck in my outbox and then Mac Mail tell me it can't send the message with the selected server. Usually if I just manually stop Mail from trying to send and then send again it works, but it's definitely not right. I've also noticed my internet and email service cut out quite a lot recently....

If you haven't already try changing your outgoing mail settings to smtp.virginmedia.com

Same here intermittently. No pattern to it, but it's very annoying.
