    After the "Incoming Mail Server" dialogue box, I was prompted for info on a dialogue box labeled "Outgoing Mail Server". I'm in mail 5.2 for OS X Lion (10.7.4) The "Outgoing Mail Security" dialogue box then did not show for me.

    Under "Outgoing Mail Server" I put smtp.gmail.com.

    Then I checked "User Authentication" and made sure my email address and password were set.

    Without this step, I couldn't have sent mail!

    What Nick describes happened to me too. But something's still not right. Erg.

    We've revised the answer to reflect an easier process to adding your account.

    It will only find the old exchange account. What should I do?

    You can always hold down the "option/alt" key after you put in your username and password while you click the "Continue" button to set it up manually if the automatic setup isn't working.
