There is no way I am going to trash e-mail accounts I have set up in
Entourage.  But I also have an iBook and was going to use Mail on that
because my only other choice would be Messenger.  Well, Mail gave me the
same message about my email being locked and would not send.  Netscape
Messenger works just fine, so it's not my ineptitude at setting up the
accounts.  I am happy to know that others have the same problems, I was
going to call my Cable company and find out why I could not set up accounts
that could send out in Apple Mail.  Now I will just forgetaboutit.
