    Can't Use Mail for Macs

    For some reason I can't shut off my computer nor open/close my mail program. It still acts like it is open (has the little triangle under it in the dash bar) but it doesn't open into anything and quitting doesn't work. I can't shut off my computer because it says it can't close mail.

    Try force quitting it. Apple->Force Quit.


    If that doesn't work just shut it down using the power button rather than going through the menus.

    Force quit FTW.

    It's the not the "right" way to do things, but if you can't do a Force Quit (sort of like Windows Task Mgr's End Task), just pull the plug on that sucker.

    Might turn the computer off, but I found the problem: the mail program is looking for my computer SMTP outgoing address and I don't know how to find it.
