smtp.mac.com password


I have just tried to open a Mac account so that I can email photos from Iphoto. I am asked to enter a password for 'smtp.mac.com:..' but it will not accept my password and I can't find the correct password. Have tried loads of things. Help!

The password is your .Mac/MobileMe password.

You can also email photos from iPhoto to any account you have setup in Mail. You don't need to have MobileMe to email photos.

The ability to email pictures out of iPhoto is merely a convenience as solipsism points out. Do you actually have a dot Mac or MobileMe account? If so, Apple's Mail program requires you to use Password Authentication, plug in your user name (but not the address -- "user name" @ mobileme . com)
