I'm setting up a mates email account that's hosted on quadrahosting, and mail.app just will not play ball, entourage connects to it fine but not mail.app
Here is mail's msg.

"Trying to log into the POP server “mail.XXXXXXX.com.au” has failed. Please make sure the username and password are correct. If you continue, you may not be able to receive any email."

It can see the sever but not the account, any ideas?
( I can log in via squirellmail, and have tried now on 3 mac's all no joy ).

have you entered the full email address in the username box? or just the part before the @

Most hosting companies require the full email address as the username these days.

So it worked?

That was going to be my advice also. It's one or the other - with or without, depending on the mail server.
