Gmail emails
This happens fairly often on my Mac Air. I can still receive emails, but when I try to send, it says server can't be contacted on the default ports. Since it works okay 99% of the time, what is the problem?

    You need to put your phone number in here if you want someone to call you. I would not recommend that since anyone can have access to this site.

    Since it works okay 99% of the time, what is the problem?   The problem is that 1% of the time, the SMTP server can't be reached. There is no solution that ensures 100% availability.   Tom
