Unless your ISP's SMTP server specifically requires authentication, make
sure that in the Account preferences, Account Information tab, under
Outgoing Mail Server-Options, you have "authentication" pulldown set at
"none". For example, my comcast.net SMTP does not require user/pass
authentication (and outgoing does fail when I set it to "authenticate"
using my Comcast user/pass); but, my mac.com SMTP has to be set for
Password authentication to successfully send outgoing mail.
